Katie Tharpe

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Amazing: Describes things that excite and delight me. Gulf of Mexico sunsets, unselfish acts of kindness that make people smile, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, roller-coasters, toffee cheesecake, and shopping on New Yorks fabulous Fifth Avenue are just a few things I find amaaaaazing!

What according to you is a true friend?
I believe a healthy lifestyle and attractive appearance are important. However, true beauty comes from within. Always maintain a happy heart filled with love for others and your inner beauty will give you self-confidence and shine through for the world to see.

How do you handle criticism?
I take great pride in my spiritual salvation and personal relationship with God. My Christian character represents who I am and reveals my desire for others to see Jesus in me. Showing kindness and compassion enables me to be a positive role model and inspiration to others.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Sunday is my favorite day of the week because its my day to relax, worship, and fellowship with friends and family while looking forward to the new week ahead filled with exciting challenges and opportunities.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Prayer is my good luck charm and ultimate key to success. Knowing I can call on God at any time to carry me through the good times and the bad puts a song in my heart and a smile on my face!
