My name is Makenzi and I’m 19 from Michigan. I got to take a trip from Michigan to Ohio for the weekend to see Justin in Columbus on July 12th, and again the next day in Cleveland on July 13th. I entered the best collection contest for both shows and when I didn’t win for the night in Columbus, I really thought I would have no luck winning for the next night in Cleveland. My sister and I were on our way to the Columbus concert and we were running super late because we had to stop a couple hours into our trip to find out what was wrong with our tires. I was thinking, “Great… this is how my weekend is gonna start.” After we got the tires fixed, we stopped at the gas station. When I was coming back from the restroom I heard my email go off on my phone. I looked down and I had won the contest! I started crying hysterically and ran and met my sister. She hugged me and threw me in the car because everyone was starring at me about to approach me to make sure I was okay. After checking into the hotel I walked to the arena because I was going to the concert alone and I had 11th row floor seats. Then these two girls gave me a wristband to be on the barrier of the catwalk. I just couldn’t believe all of this was happening to me, I felt like I was dreaming. The concert was incredible and I walked out of the arena very teary eyed, feeling so blessed. The next day we got ready early and headed to Cleveland because I was meeting Justin! After waiting in a room with a bunch of fans it was time to line up and meet him. When I walked in the room he said, “Hi” and gave me a hug. I looked at him and told him, “Thank you for saving my life.” He looked at me and said, “Awh sweetheart, you’re welcome.” It was time for a picture and my eyes had been sticking together all day and bothering me and I BLINKED right when the camera went off. Justin gave me a big hug goodbye, and I said, “Justin I blinked in my picture I cant believe it” and he said “You didn’t blink, I promise they took two pictures.” Then security pushed me out! When I got my picture I was blinking!!!! But it’s okay, I look like I’m in heaven next to the person who has gotten me through the worst times of my life. Those few seconds with him, were the very best. If you have not gotten the chance to meet Justin, honestly just stay strong and BELIEVE that it will happen, even if it’s not the next time you see him, have faith that one day you will! Stay positive, positivity is key. I have faith you will!
