Megan Riesner - Top Ten

1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
I love the sound of rain as it taps against my window. The sound of rain drops is extremely calming and it leads me to believe that heaven is sending me a message from my guardian angels looking down on me.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
I am lucky to have been touched with multiple talents but one talent I have always aspired to be is a soccer player. Although I am agile in the sense of dance, the ball and my foot usually do not connect.

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
My devotion to helping others has given me insight into my future. Becoming involved with fundraising to support Children's Cancer Fund, a cause close to my heart, has sculpted me into the individual I am today. I believe giving back is a habit everyone should carry!!

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
I believe in the common saying, We learn from our mistakes. I turn my mistakes into motivation to make things right for the next situation I am faced with. I do not regret my mistakes, because if I hadnt made them I would not know how to make things better.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
Lemons!! Lemons are my absolute favorite flavor. I love lemon on my bagels for breakfast, an enriched lemon sauce in my pasta and salad for lunch, and chicken piccata for dinner! I think it is a great enhancer in just about any dish!
