Favorite quote? Why?
“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow.” – Vincent van Gogh
I love this quote because by nature everyone loves staying in his or her own little comfort zone. It’s inevitable. But like everyone says, if you stay there, you won’t really be able to experience new things, meet new people or travel new places. This quote always reminds me that it definitely might be scary to step out of that comfort zone and you might not know what happens, but you’ll never know unless you try!
Name one fun fact about yourself.
I love going on trips, especially road trips! I went on a lot growing up and I also love to drive so you can say road trips are special to me no matter how far or close the traveling distance may be.
People would be surprised if they knew:
I used to be a majorette for a few years when I was younger!
What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?
Don’t start arguing with that girl during P.E. even if you’re trying to defend your friend over flag football. It almost ends in a fight, so just shut up and don’t say anything!
How would you define success?
Success is not about having a lot money, fame, or power. Success is when you know you’ve tried and worked your hardest. It’s being proud of yourself and the results of your hard work. Success shouldn’t be all about gaining the approval from others; it should be gaining the approval from no one but you!
What is your favorite book?
I read a lot! So it’s hard to choose one. But I just finished a book over Spring Break called “Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes and that might just be my favorite one at the moment.
What did you want to be when growing up?
I wanted to be violinist! And no, I don’t know how to play the violin. I wish I could have, but the violin costs way too much!!
What is the most important thing you have learned in the last five years?
The most important thing that I have learned is to push myself out of my comfort zone and that even if it’s a small step or a big step; it is still an accomplishment nonetheless!
Which superpower would you like to have and why?
I would like to be able to “jump” just like that movie Jumper! Being able to get from one place to another in a blink of an eye.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Emma Stone. (she’s pretty funny)
If you were a character from Star Wars, which one would you be and why?
I would be a Yoda because he seems to know everything and is always surprisingly calm despite high stress situations, which is something I need to learn how to do.
Pick three words to describe yourself. Why did you choose each one?
Supportive/Caring: I always try to be extremely supportive towards people I know because I think everyone needs someone that cheers them on once in awhile.
Spontaneous: I would like to think I am spontaneous because I’m always up for an adventure!
Artistic: I love doing something artsy whether it’s painting, practicing calligraphy, taking photos, writing poetry, or even finding and listening to music.
What is your dream job?
My dream job would be either event planning or something dealing with entertainment/media!
What is your favorite social media platform? Why?
It would have to be Instagram because you can just see how creative people can get when they’re dedicated to photography or story telling through their posts. Also, I like looking at photography, so Instagram is the best platform for that!
