“Bitter or Better?”
Makayla Holt was born and raised in Cache Valley. She attended Sky View High School where she graduated in 2015. While in high school she ran cross country, participated in various clubs, and served on student government. The summer after high school she received a mission call to Concepcion, Chile where she served for a time before returning home on medical release.
After a long healing process, she is now attending Utah State University where she is pursuing a degree in Communication & Psychology with a minor in Spanish. She hopes to be able to join a nonprofit organization and provide humanitarian services to those in need across the world.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, running, studying the gospel, and spending time with her family --especially if it's outside.
Upon returning home, Makayla started a blog and has been an advocate for Early Returned Missionaries and helping others understand the challenges they face.
