D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board Alumna from South Dakota

My name is Makenna Christiansen. I am a sophomore in high school. I run cross country and track, and play basketball for my high school. I am very passionate about music. I love to sing, play the piano, and I am presently learning how to play the ukulele. I am the second of six kids. I have three younger brothers and two sisters. In my free time I am usually reading (mostly Harry Potter), drawing, hanging out with friends, watching Disney movies, or spending time with my family.

I love assisting others and learning new things. I also like working with other people. I enjoy group projects and team situations. Circumstances in which I can be creative are something I enjoy. Challenging situations or environments are also fun and beneficial. I am enthusiastic to be a part of D.A.R.E., and am excited to be a positive influence on my community. I am grateful to serve as the D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board South Dakota Representative.
