1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
1. I have a competitive spirit and have been on a National Championship Competitive Cheer team for nine years. My favorite part about being a cheerleader is not only performing, but also getting to travel all across the country for competitions.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
2. My role model is my great grandpa Charlie. He served in the Army during WWII. I look up to him because even in the worst times he was always happy, and he wanted to share that with others.

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
3. For fun I entered a Disney dance competition. I was surprised when my parents received a call from Disney asking to showcase me on their website.

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
4. Volunteering has been a big part of my life since I was five years old. I went from making cards for soldiers overseas to helping sick children in my community. As a result of my dedication, I have received several national community service awards.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
5. My dream college is Harvard Law School. I want to earn my law degree and help underprivileged kids who cannot help themselves. My mom always told me, "Go big or go home!"
