Kayla Rivera - Top Ten

1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
The winter season is my favorite time of the year. It brings my family closer during the cold weather-watching movies and playing board games. Its the time of year when you really appreciate what you have in life - spending time with family and friends.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
I was adopted at birth; I was blessed with amazing parents and memorable life experiences. Weve recently met with my biological family. My family has doubled in size and Im no longer the baby of the family - I have 4 beautiful younger siblings who now look up to me.

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
The village of Jeffersonville is a small, old-fashioned farming town. Jeffersonville may not have the most attractions or a city like atmosphere, but what it does have is a strong bond between all of its citizens. It is a town ripe with good morals and even better ethics.

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
Id have to say my worst habit is that Im a perfectionist when it comes to school work. I could never submit anything to a teacher unless its neat and I know I did it to my full potential.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
Id love to travel to Israel, not only does the culture and history interest me, but they also have such an amazing amount of diversity. One day I hope to travel there and volunteer at the TRCI-theyre an amazing Therapeutic Riding Facility that Id love to learn more about.
