WVEC-TV: Norfolk Teen Balances Science with Music

Originally aired on WCEV-TV 13 News Now – April 11, 2018

17-year-old McKenna Goss has a bright future ahead.

She can play six different instruments including the guitar, piano, ukulele, flute and violin.

She’s also interested in botany, hopes to complete a marathon before she turns 18, and has plans to hike part of the Appalachian Trail after she graduates.

Goss is also an Ivy League prospect with a full workload online through the Cyber Academy of South Carolina. She wants to join the Army as well.

It’s all part of a bigger goal and her future career.

“I’m going to go into aeronautical engineering,” said Goss. “I want to become an astronaut.”

The teen is analytical and cerebral, calling herself an introvert.

But it’s through music that Goss can be expressive and free.
