My name is Makayla Burk and I am 18 years old. I am a fun person to be around. I can be crazy, but when I am told to get serious, I will become serious. I just love to have fun doing the things I love. I have been singing for a long time. When I was little, I would always sing for my church and my school. My grandma always encouraged me to sing. I sing during the day randomly. Singing has become a part of my daily life. I teach myself to do better and I plan to have some lessons from someone. I just found a singing teacher but will only be a couple times a month because her schedule is full because she is incredible.
I was born and raised in Lenexa, Kansas. I grew up with three brothers, two older and one younger. Living with all guys really taught me to stand up for myself and just to be tough. I have all male cousins as well. I am the only granddaughter in my family.
I also play sports. My main sport is tennis. I actually received a tennis scholarship to play top three for John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
I have sung lots of solos for my school every time we had an elementary award thing or show. I have been lead parts in plays in elementary school. I was recently one of the leads in Sabrina Fair, Uncle Phil's Diner, Mousetrap, and was the lead in the Role of Della.
When I want something, I go for it and work hard to get there. I guarantee it!
*God is my first and foremost interest. Without Him I wouldn't have the talent that i have today. I don't know what I would do without Him. He is my guide and my light and my salvation. He is amazing and so grateful and promising! I love Him so much!
*Tennis is my sport! I am now a college tennis player.
*I love to sing! I sing all day long everyday. I cannot go through my day without listening to music and singing along or just singing acapello. I don't think I have gone through one day without singing something.
*I love my family so much! They are very supportive of me and they are always there for me. I love just hanging out with my family. People may think that hanging out with family is cheesy, but I love it. I am so close to my family and I don't know what I would do without their love and support.
*I also love hanging out with my friends. I love to go shopping with them.
*I also like to read sometimes. No, I am not a bookworm or anything. It just helps if I am stressed with school or going through hard situations. I like to read love/Christian stories. They are amazing and I always learn something new about God. I love to read the Bible too! I try to read it everyday if possible. It helps me get through tough situations and helps relieve a lot of stress.
