I saw her in IFS. a few years back. Does anyone know what she's doing now,and how old she is?
Can you check how her name is spelled? I don't recognize the name.
LOL,I double-Checked. I had her last name switched. It's Makenna Leik.
She was featured as a "Kid Spotlight" when she was 8 and must be around 11 now: http://www.usfsa.org/Magazine.asp?id=56&issue=43903
She's not a well-known skater at this point -- just one of many who competed at the Juvenile level at U.S. Regionals this season.
FSWer- the kids featured in kid spotlight are just randomly chosen from USFS programs around the country. They don't necessarily have any spectacular talent (though some do) and most will never be heard of again (it is fun to find a back issue that does have an Olympian, because they are rare.) This skater may be something special or she may be one of the thousands of kids who skates as a youth sport.
I'm guessing this is her Youtube channel:
