Jasmine shared that she has most gotten out of this relationship is fun especially not having a sibling growing up McKenzie is like her own family.
Jasmine said if she could share one thing with McKenzie about her impact on her life she would say, "McKenzie, I am so glad I got to be your Big Sis. Watching you grow, learn, and mature has been an incredible experience. While getting to know you, I not only learned so many new things, but I also learned so many new things.
