Brindee Heaton - Top 5

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Laughter is definitely the best medicine and I can count on my 3 older brothers to give me a huge dose! We are so close and it’s laughter that has built that bond. My parents claim that we can read each other's minds because we will break out in laughter without even saying a word but we totally understand why we are laughing, we just get each other, it’s always random, and I love it!

What according to you is a true friend?
I'd say I'm an organized, messy kind of person. I like to save sentimental "treasures" but my dad thinks I have a few too many. He always says, "A place for everything, and everything in its place." That place just might be on my nightstand or vanity instead of in a drawer, because seeing them sparks memories, and memories bring joy. Each item in my happy mess has an organized, intentional spot!

How do you handle criticism?
My favorite vacation spots are at the beach or lake and I absolutely love being in the water... as long as I can't see the bottom! For some reason, I am scared to death if I can see the bottom. It doesn't make sense, I know... especially because ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of being a mermaid, go figure?!

When was the last time you tried something new?
My absolute favorite ice cream is Moose Tracks! It is a combination of vanilla ice cream with stripes of fudge chocolate running through it, and the yummiest mini reeses peanut butter cups (which is my favorite candy)! I'm definitely a girl who loves a mixture of ice cream, chocolate, & peanut butter!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I am the most myself when I am dancing! When I dance my heart out and let go of all the stress life brings, I feel pure joy. It is said that dance has the curative power to heal our mind, heart, and soul. I love sharing through movement and when I perform for a captivated audience, I think we both experience that power.
