Wk 14 – Classmate Conversation – Shannon Jenich & Makenna LaFortune

What a nice day to meet to lovely ladies!

Shannon is a Human Development major with two years left before she graduates. Shannon, without hesitation, described what she wanted to do when she grew up. She plans to go on to a nursing program with hopes to become an RN and eventually a nurse practitioner. She is born and raised in Long Beach and has no plans to move out of the area as of yet. I couldn’t hep but notice Shannon’s drawing skills – she’s got ’em! She says she enjoys drawing for fun and pursues it when she can.


Makenna is one of the few dance majors in our class. She has been dancing since first grade; about 15 years.  Similar to Shannon, Makenna also seems to have a good head on her shoulders with respect to post graduation goals. She knows for certain that she will dance. At this point she is open to many ideas, however. She talked about joining a cruise line? That way she could get paid to dance and travel the world. A win-win! Her favorite type of dance to perform is what is know as modern contemporary. Or jazz. She isn’t opposed to expanding her talents into the realm of acting. She feels these dual talents will make her more versatile – as finding gigs that are only dance can be challenging at times. She is originally from Las Vegas but also plans to stay in the Long Beach, southern California area long term.

It was nice meeting the two! I always enjoy getting to talk with such focused, “go-getter” women!
