She returned to Cleveland High for the first time since the accident on Monday night for a benefit in her honor.
"A group of people, of concerned citizens, can get together, pool their resources, ask some favors of some friends, and raise some money for a good cause," said actor /*Rainn Wilson*/ from "/*The Office*/."
Wilson was the emcee for Komedy for Kenza.
Comedians like Wendy Lieberman and Thomas Lennon performed at the benefit that packed more than 500 people.
Kenza said it was an incredible experience.
"It's completely overwhelming, there's so much emotion right now. It's a room full of love," she said.
The money raised at the benefit will go toward stem cell therapy in Germany.
Cleveland High School parents were the ones who got the ball rolling with the benefit.
"My daughter actually came up with the idea, and I called some great comedic friends of mine," said parent Jennifer Rawlings, who is also a comedian.
Kenza's dream is to walk again.
"There just aren't any words to really express my gratitude to them," Kenza said.
"If there's any way I could even return it, it would be to walk with them."
