Makena (#618) 06-11-14

Busted! Another portrait of an ice cream shop employee. This time it's in Marco, FL. Makena was as bubbly a personality as you'd ever want to meet. And why not, she had graduated from high school three days earlier!

She attended St. John Neumann High School in nearby Naples. Nearly a year earlier, a friend of her mother suggested St. Mary's College, in Notre Dame, Indiana. How Catholic is that? They had never heard of it, but the more they read, the more they liked. And when Makena visited the school, it was love at first sight. So this fall, off she will go. She wants to do teaching and counseling for disadvantaged students.

Makena loves cats. Her mother volunteers for a group that collects and neuters feral cats in MARCO. Amazingly, we were with a woman who does the same thing, in Naples. Small world.
