Shealay SmithPeople's Choice Award
1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
My favorite food is any kind of pasta because of the memories I have with my dad and grandma. My favorite memory is my dad teaching me the â€œpasta trickâ€ where you throw cooked pasta on something. If it sticks, itâ€™s done. It resulted in a food fight, and we were covered in pasta. I also love pasta because it can be made in many unique ways; just like people. My favorite is fettuccine alfredo.
2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
A perfect date would be a date with myself doing something I enjoy, such as hunting. Hunting helps me practice patience and being calm. With the busyness of life, itâ€™s important to take time to ourselves doing something that we enjoy and something that expresses our personality. Hunting allows me to reconnect with myself by taking time away from everything thatâ€™s going on, and it allows me to focus on just being in the present.
3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
Depending on the time of year, Iâ€™m either playing volleyball, working at the local movie theater, or camping on the weekends. All three of these, even work, are outlets for me, which are important to have. The weekdays are so busy, so on the weekends I need outlets that allow me to have fun and to laugh and connect with people. Having an outlet makes me a better person, while also teaching me different skills.
4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
The last time I went shopping it was more than likely for groceries. My dad and I typically do the grocery shopping for our family together, as we both have different food allergies. Other than grocery shopping, Iâ€™m not a big shopper. When I do shop, a lot of my shopping is done online because we live in a small town, but we prefer to shop local and support local businesses if and when possible.
5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
Yes, make-up can be important. In certain circumstances, make-up can change our mindset and help us feel more confident, which can help us be more productive. Make-up can also be a form of art, and it can help us express our personality. Although I think make-up can be important, I think itâ€™s even more important to always be confident without it and to let our personality and sparkle shine brighter than any make-up we wear.
