#MyBTR– “I cannot imagine my life without tennis. It has been so engrained in me, with practice basically every day, I am sure life would be boring without it. My dad started it all. He used to watch tennis all the time, so I guess he wanted me to love the sport as much as he did. For me now, it is extremely fun. All I want to do is to become the best player I can possibly be. My dreams are to first go to an incredible college which will hopefully lead to me becoming a professional tennis player at some point. At the moment I practice with the team at the University of Minnesota, which is one of my top dream schools, so I can stay in state. If not, I am all for going to a school down south to get away from these winters. I am trying to juggle my other passions, like acting and modeling, with tennis. I understand that in the future it will be difficult to manage but my goal is to try to find a way to intertwine them and make it all work. For now as I grow as a tennis player and influencer I just try to be as positive as possible. This allows me to push passed setbacks. I recently found out I have asthma. I remember for years not being able to have the endurance and speed I wanted regardless of how good of shape I was in. One day my coach forced me to see a doctor because he thought I was about to pass out and that’s when I found out. Through my reach on Instagram I try to inspire kids younger than me to get into tennis. I just want them to be active and just have fun with it. It’s incredible when girls write to me and say that I am an inspiration for them. I look up to Serena Williams and especially Bathanie Mattek Sands and just thought she is a huge role model. To be that for someone else is really special.” Makenzie Raine
