Favorite:

Alumni Vikings Player: Brett Favre, unless he is wearing any color besides purple.

Current Vikings Player: Teddy Bridgewater

Phone App: Soundcloud

Junk food: Milk Duds. I have received Milk Duds as a birthday gift on more occasions than I am proud of.

Song that gets me dancing: Man! I Feel Like a Woman, by Shania Twain. Let’s go girls.

Movie: Bridesmaids. Any movie with Kristen Wiig is a movie I am a fan of.

TV Show: The Office. I can never get enough of Jim and Pam’s love story...or of Michael’s hilarious oblivion to any and all social cues.

Book: The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford, a book explaining how the US economy really works. It was fascinating, thought-provoking, and I learned so much from it that I now consider it to be my favorite book.

Twin Cities restaurant: Fogo de Chão. Who can resist an all-you-can-eat steakhouse?!

Place I’ve traveled: My family and I traveled to St. Lucia in the Caribbean once over Spring Break, and the beauty of the island was absolutely breathtaking. The sunburns I came home with were also breathtaking.

Concert: Last summer, I lost my voice for a week after seeing a concert by one of my favorite bands, One Direction. Although my voice came back, my dignity never did.

Holiday: Thanksgiving

Charity: Arthritis Foundation- I donate a lot of time to raising money and awareness for Juvenile Arthritis in order to give back to kids that have had a piece of their childhood taken by having arthritis. It is important to know that kids get arthritis too, and as a result of the children I have met through the Arthritis Foundation, I am thankful for each and every day I am able to dance without pain because not everyone has the privilege of that.

MVC Costume: Baby Helga

My first job: Barista at Starbucks - which explains my affinity for caffeine.

Three words to describe me: What’s your name?! :)

My biggest fear: Is hornets. I don’t care if they won’t bother you if you don’t move...I will sprint away faster than Usain Bolt.

My dream job: CEO of Target Corporation. Even if I were the CEO, I would still probably spend my entire paycheck at Target.

My best beauty secret is: EXFOLIATE! Your skin will thank you.

Fans would be surprised to know: When I was 19 I lived on my own in Puerto Rico for a summer. It was an amazing adventure, and I am now fluent in Spanish. Voy a ustedes, Vikingos!

On the top of my bucket list is: See each of the SEVEN continents. (Yes, I have researched Antarctic cruises)

Words I live by: “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” -Nelson Mandela

My hero: My hero is my older sister, Mackenzie. She is my personal cheerleader, my toughest coach, and would protect me like a lineman no matter what.
