Shelby Specht

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
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.

What according to you is a true friend?
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.

How do you handle criticism?
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.

When was the last time you tried something new?
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.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
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!"
