What Superhero would you like to be and why?
I laugh the most when I watch old home videos and look at pictures from when I was little! They me laugh because they bring back so many fun memories of acting silly with my family. My sisters and I have so much fun singing and dancing together! We also enjoy recreating our old videos. My middle sister tells the best jokes and always makes me laugh too!

What according to you is a true friend?
I am most definitely a clean person! My closet is all color coded and labeled... and I have a bin for everything. I inherited this from my mom! I have always loved to organize. I’ve even been hired to overhaul several toy rooms. Having a clean room makes me feel good and motivates me!

How do you handle criticism?
Honestly, I can’t think of any strange fears. I enjoy trying new things and I am a dare devil. I especially love roller coasters with my dad!

When was the last time you tried something new?
The best topping and ice cream combination is melted peanut butter on top of “peanut butter blunder” ice cream, from Stensland’s! This creamery was opened a few years ago by a local dairy farm and they have the BEST ice cream! I like this combination because it is sweet and salty, and includes some of my favorite candy bars. We enjoy going here for family dates!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I am most myself when I am at dance. My studio is like a second home to me. My coaches and teammates are like family. Dance has shaped me into the person I am today! It has given me an abundance of confidence, grace and accountability that helps me in every area of my life. I love to express myself through the art of dance!
