How can I show my personality during a job interview?

I want to be enthusiastic and interested.. I also want to stand out.. how can I stand out? I have a job interview at Mcdonald's this afternoon and I want to impress the hiring manager! It's just that I get stuck during the interview questions. This would be my first job so how can I show off my skills to get the job??? I've just done some volunteer work at the hospital, and I've joined school clubs at my college, but other than that I have no work experience. I heard having open availability helps though. So should I mention that during the interview? Would that matter? What kind of words should I use? Absolutely, positively, sure, of course, I just want to be myself but my best self, but I can't? How can I make myself be confident? Thanks.
