Hi! I’m Kett. I’m the youngest of ten children in my family. I have a port-wine birthmark on half of my face. It extends from the crown of my head to the top of my lip and across to my ear. It is the first thing people see when they look at me. My goal is to make sure that it’s the last thing they think about after meeting me.

I played varsity soccer and ran cross-country and was team captain for both sports. I was a Student Body officer. I am an Eagle Scout. I have spoken at vascular birthmark events in the state of Utah. I was voted as the student to represent my classmates, speaking at our graduation. My birthmark doesn’t define me, but I hope that I have been able to give it the definition of a remarkable part that makes me, me.
