What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Growing up on a wild life management lake, I have always loved the sounds of nature like birds singing and wind blowing through the trees. I especially love the sound of frogs and crickets at night; it helps put me to sleep and sounds like home.

What according to you is a true friend?
I think I would really like to have a super power as my talent. Being able to fly would be really awesome. I could swoop in and save people in distress. Plus my Super hero costume would be AMAZING!!

How do you handle criticism?
I think that it is very important to give thanks for everything you have and to pray before doing any task. It is something so simple and yet so important.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Yes and thank goodness I do. Being human means everyone makes mistakes. I try to learn from them and with this knowledge be a stronger person. It is not always easy but definitely something I strive to achieve.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Anything my Dad grills! He is a grilling genius! I love home cooked meals and spending time with family. Since becoming involved with the American Heart Association, we have had a lot of fun trying new recipes and finding ways to make our favorites more heart healthy.
