Each week, 49ers.com gets to know two members of the 49ers Gold Rush. This week, we meet McKenzie, a rookie from Loma Linda, Calif. along with Natalie C. a third-year member of the squad.
What do you like most about being a member of the Gold Rush?
NATALIE C.:Working with an organization that gives back to the community.
MCKENZIE:What I love most about being a member of the Gold Rush is the amount of love and support I feel from my fellow 39 sisters. It's truly a dream come true to be able to share the field with such an intelligent, inspiring and beautiful group of women. They all have truly impacted my life in such a unique way that I will never be able to repay them for. They have become my second family and I am eternally grateful for that. If you were a tourist in San Francisco what three things are on your must do list?
NATALIE C.:Eat everything at Pier 39, go down Lombard Street and then take a sightseeing tour in a GO car.MCKENZIE: The three things on my must do list in San Francisco are to take a cheesy photo in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, visit Alcatraz Island and take either the standard or audio tours and finally find the rope swing at Billy Goat Hill Park for an impeccable view of the city.What is your dream job?NATALIE C.: *My dream job is to be a Neonatal intensive care unit nurse.MCKENZIE: * would like to be an Entertainment News Anchor, the next Giuliana Rancic on E! News.Who is the most inspirational person in your life?**
NATALIE C.: My parents. They are both beautiful, strong individuals. My parents taught me that there is always light at the end of every tunnel and to never give up on my dreams.
MCKENZIE:The most inspirational person in my life is my sister. She is my number one fan. No matter what crazy idea or adventure I take her on, she's always right by my side saying, 'Do It! You Got This!' She inspires me everyday to shoot for the stars. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't be the person I am today.
How would you describe your style?MCKENZIE:My style is all over the place. I go from rocking my ACDC shirt to kicking it in my red cowgirl boots. I like to have fun with my style and try new things. Life is too boring to wear boring clothes!
