Courtney Miller - Top 11

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
I entered the world in a Chevy Lumina during the middle of winter on December 10, 1996. I was so eager to be a part of my family that I couldnt wait to be born at the hospital. My proud father delivered me in the car in route to the hospital.

What according to you is a true friend?
When I was four years old, my sister was entering into kindergarten. I wanted to be just like her and learn the same things she was. My mom began to teach me the basics of math, reading, and writing. By the time I was five, I was reading a newspaper and able to do 2nd grade math. My teachers saw an opportunity; so after meeting all state requirements, I was skipped to the first grade.

How do you handle criticism?
Up until the age of 16, my father was an active duty soldier in the US Army. Growing up, I experienced the life of an army brat.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Since I was born, my parents have taken my sister and I camping all over the country. I have so many fond memories of being in the outdoors. Going hiking, fishing, and swimming with our close family friends has given me so many opportunities to experience the outdoors and spend quality time with my family.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
My ethnicity is half American and half Greek; my father is from Kentucky and my mother is a native of Athens, Greece. From the two different religions to the eclectic meals, my life has been a melting pot of both cultures growing up.
