Hello everyone! My name is Makenzie and I will be spending the year at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. I just finished my second year at The Ohio State University (GO BUCKEYES!!!). I am a Zoology major with a minor in Human and Animal Interactions. As an Alaskan, I’ve grown to love the outdoors, so I’m always up for a new adventure. I’m super excited to explore New Zealand this coming year and all the treasures it has to offer! Join my journey as I make new friends, try new foods, and embrace New Zealand’s adventurous spirit!

As I sit in my room that turned out to be 100x bigger than I imagined… So many things are running through my head. The past two weeks have felt like two YEARS. I still can’t believe I’m all moved in, enrolled in classes, and have even made a few friends… More
