Brigham Young University
Health Management 2019
During the summer before high school Kendra’s goal was to make the varsity soccer team. She made the team and won the cross country state championship as well. On May 27, 2011 following her freshman year Kendra’s life changed drastically when a column of bricks holding up the hammock she was lying in collapsed and fell on her. In the hospital for three months unable to walk she couldn’t breathe, talk, eat or sit up in bed. Painstakingly relearning the most basic of tasks taught Kendra that she could do much albeit differently and her drive and spirit helped her achieve a 4.0 grade point average and she was admitted to many schools before settling on BYU. She served as a student body officer at Riverton High School, President of her church youth group and was a member of the national honor society. Kendra continues to enjoy sports such as fencing, swimming, paragliding, kayaking and hand biking. She is also a member of the Utah Scorpions wheelchair rugby team. Kendra enjoys excelling and has always pushed for the highest goals.
