Getting to know You(bc)...

We are reviving the UBC blog in order to introduce you to the amazing folks who call UBC "home!"  Look for these about 2-3 times a week.  Take time to pray for the person being featured, learn their name and face and say "hi" when you see them at church. ______________________

Name:  Maxcey Kite

Age:  22

Where do you call home?

Aledo, TX (just west of Fort Worth)

What do you do in Waco?

Senior at Baylor (Professional Writing major, Religion minor)

What do you love most about UBC?

I love how UBC views life through the lens of its benediction (Love God. Embrace beauty. Live life to the fullest.). Through UBC I have found a community in which I feel both welcomed and comfortable but in which I am also continually challenged to feel uncomfortable so that through my struggles my faith may grow. 

Favorite Movie?

A Knight's Tale or Beauty and the Beast

Favorite book/author?

Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion series followed closely by Harry Potter :)

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A teacher

What do you want to be now when you grow up?

When I grow up on May 18th, I would like to do marketing/communications for a nonprofit.

Favorite artist/band/musician?

Taylor Swift (we both love cats, Ellen, and I can actually sing along to her songs with my very limited vocal range.)

Best Burger in Waco?

Five Guys

What do we HAVE to know about you to really know you?

I love these seven things: my Lord and God, my fiancé, my family, my friends, kittens, chocolate, and travel. If I'm not busy, I'm bored. I believe a smile and good communication can solve nearly every conflict. My number one strength (according to the Baylor StrengthsFinder) is responsibility and it is also a strength I value highly in others. I don't like tomatoes and I have a little latte maker so I can make my own vanilla lattes.

What does Luke, your fiance, feel about Taylor Swift being your favorite artist?

Luke's feelings about T-Swift being my favorite artist, and really about Taylor herself, have developed over the past three years as a result of what can only be called immersion therapy. What started off as mere tolerance has progressed to secret admissions of singing along with her on the radio. In other words, he knows all of the words to her most popular songs, and (though he may not publicly admit it) he likes them. Win :)

What is your favorite YouTube video of all time? It never gets old :)
