Natalie Horner - 2nd Runner-Up
What Superhero would you like to be and why?
It honestly does not take very much to make me laugh because I am always laughing! What makes me laugh the most though is when I can make other people around me laugh. I love a good belly laugh! Laughter truly is contagious and it makes my day so much better when I am laughing and having a good time with others.
What according to you is a true friend?
I consider myself very clean and organized, but If you ask my friends and family they would say that I am messy. I prefer the term “organized chaos”. To others, it may seem messy, but I know exactly where everything is located though!
How do you handle criticism?
I am absolutely terrified of frogs. Living in the south, means that during the summertime many of my friends enjoy going “frog gigging” (hunting frogs) and eating them. Which completely freaks me out! Even though I love spending time outdoors, I will do whatever it takes to avoid a frog: Including, but not limited to jumping higher than the actual frog!
When was the last time you tried something new?
In my opinion nothing compares to peanut butter and chocolate. I LOVE peanut butter ice cream with Reese’s candy on top. When I need a sweet-treat I love visiting a local ice cream shop, Swirlz, for THE BEST peanut butter ice cream and adding my favorite candy to the top! I’ve always heard that peanut butter is a great source of protein, so that makes my ice cream choices healthier, right?!
Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Since my feet hit the dance floor in my mother’s studio at two years old, my love for dance has never stopped. I have always seen dance as my haven. Whether I am stressed or having a bad day, dance allows me to express myself and release my worries. When I am dancing, I can show the many sides of myself. Dance not only allows me to express myself, but also discover myself so young.
