What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My favorite word is "grace" because it is such an admirable and defining quality. Through grace, I have learned to love, forgive, and accept others for who they are, as well as myself.

What according to you is a true friend?
Being the health freak that I am, I believe the best beauty secret is a healthy diet and exercise. A healthy body allows you to be beautiful on the inside and out. Remember, you only look as good as you feel!

How do you handle criticism?
I take the most pride in my determination. My determination is what separates me from others and has brought me to where I am today. When I set a goal, I use every ounce of my being to reach it and will not let anything stop me.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Friday is my favorite day of the week. As a cheerleader, Fridays mean "game night" and I love cheering for football or basketball games! Every Friday, I feel relieved to have made it through another week of school and look forward to spending time with the people I love.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
My good luck charm is my mom! I always perform best when she is watching and supporting me. During every competition, game, or race, the only thing I can hear is her encouraging voice screaming for me! She gives me the confidence and strength I need to keep going.
