Hi, my name is Makenzi Jena Hydes-Riley. I have just turned 16 years of age this August 2023 & I have left Stockbridge High School. I live within the City of Sheffield in a Village called Stocksbridge, in the UK.

I was accepted in Barnsley College to study Sports Coaching for the next 2 years. So, that will be September of this year 2023 to 2025. So I am know legitimately enrolled this August 2023 to start College this September 2023. I am really excited! It’s for my Football interest, so I will be doing Course Work in the week & I will be Football Training also on a Monday & Tuesday, after College with the College. No days off for me. the College also have their own Team called Barnsley Academy Ladies. Every Wednesday the College has League Matches against other Colleges.

Last Season 22/23 I played for Sheffield Wednesday Ladies FC under 16’s. I was their number one Goal Keeper. On my 4th League Match playing for SWLFC, I received the Player of the Match Trophy. Plus, another one later towards the end of the Seasons  too. So, that was twice in that Season/. My Parents & I are well chuffed! We also won a Trophy for coming second in the League, so they went up to Division One (B) too.

So, an up & coming New Season 23/24 & I now play for Barnsley Sports Academy at Barnsley College & I am their Number One Goalkeeper. We train on a Tuesday & we play matches on a Wednesday. Watch this space!

I have also recently started working for Nick Baker Photography in August of this year 2023. I work 3 days a week at  hours a week. Ion the rile of Website & Social Media Assistant. Assisting Nick with their website and social media. learning how a website is created while assisting. Which I really enjoy doing.

I am also a Fire Cadet, at my Local Station 17 within Stocksbridge, which we are lucky to have. I attend this once a weeks. As… I do want to be a Part-Time Fire Fighter when I am old enough, which you have to be 18 years of age before you can apply.

I am trained in Dancing, at local Dance School City Limits, that is family run. This is a World Class Dance Centre where Darren & his wife Lilia Kopylova, are former winners of BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. I learnt Street Dancing. I was in Dance Competitions in Solo, Pairs & Team. I was also in my local Amateur Dramatic School, which is called the Steel Valley Beacon Arts.

I am also signed up to a Modelling Company, which is called Star Now &  Face, which I am available for jobs etc. Plus, I enter at least one Pageant a year. This is because, if you do win, then you have to be fully committed to that Title, for at least a year.

Plus, I also have 3 Paper Rounds in Stocksbridge where I lived, which is called the Look Local& I do this three times a week. That’s a total of 730 Newspapers I deliver per week.

Thank you for your time!
