Three Words to Describe Me: Grateful, Passionate, Bubbly

My biggest fear: Amusement park rides. I do not like being spun, flung, or hung from things. My fear is so bad, in sixth grade our class had a fieldtrip to Valleyfair and I happened to come down with a “stomach bug” that day so I did not have to go. I have never been so excited to miss a fieldtrip.

My hobbies: Surfing Pinterest for new food and clothing inspirations as well as shopping.

My dream job: To host my own talk show similar to the Ellen DeGeneres show. I would love to go to work knowing that day I was having special guests and giving out fruit baskets underneath people’s seats. Every day at work would be a party---literally!

My best beauty secret: Is to not wash your hair every day. I have found my hair color stays brighter and fresher and my ends stay healthier when only choosing to wash it once or twice a week. Invest in a good dry shampoo- it will become your best friend

Fans would be surprised to know: I won first place in a Loon calling contest when I was seven. I decided on a whim to take part in this contest with much push from my family. That day in Fergus Falls, Minnesota I was crowned first place for my Loon call and that’s not all—I got to be in a parade and received a wooden Loon sculpture that I have sitting in my room to this day

On the top of my bucket list: Ever since I was a little girl I have always wanted to witness the ball drop in New York City on New Year’s Eve. After watching it on TV for years I think it would be so festive to be there live amongst hundreds of people

Words I live by: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” If you simply read the first part of this verse it immediately signifies arrogance. However, the next two words take the context of arrogance out altogether. It is not a boast of self, but rather a complete trust in Christ for all things

My greatest achievement: My greatest achievement thus far in my life is receiving the Shining Star and Most Improved Cheerleader award voted on by my teammate last year as an MVC.

My hero: My hero is fellow teammate but more so, friend, Karen. You can find her on this roster! Karen was my small team captain last year for my rookie season and she is the kindest, most humble person I have ever met. It is a true blessing to know her.
