I too am a 7th grader at cc and was close friends with Makayla, I was a transfer student and she was the first person at central catholic to befriend me. I remember she always wore these crazy fun socks that some people made fun of but most adored . We had this joke in our 6th hour theology that instead of Jesus always being the answer it was David, David was always the answer. One other big thing that brought us together was in all school mass. We always raised our hands as far as they would go during the our father and at the end when our theology teacher came to pick up the mass sheets she would wait for him to leave and speak in her best baby voice and say " welp there goes the Jesus teacher" and we would laugh so hard every time because with Makayla no joke or saying ever got old.
