Project Description

McKenzie Roller, from Avon, Connecticut, recently graduated from Miss Porter’s High School. McKenzie started a club called FaceUp that focuses on holding discussions on controversial issues while welcoming all perspectives into the conversation. She was also involved in AWARE (Association for White Enti-Racist Education) and Model UN. McKenzie was also a student-athlete, participating in cross country, basketball, and lacrosse.

During her Gap Year, Mckenzie hopes to understand the world from perspectives outside of her own, improve her Spanish language skills, and work with organizations that cater to her interests in education, social justice, racial equality, and women and girl’s empowerment.
