Savannah Wahrer - Top 11

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Disney World has always been a special place for my family and me. We have been fortunate to be able to go to Disney World several times so far in my life. I have always been the cautious child in the house, but thanks to my fearless little brother encouraging me to try something new, my favorite ride is now The Barnstormer Roller Coaster at Magic Kingdom. Stepping outside your comfort zone can be exciting!

What according to you is a true friend?
Several years ago, my Mom started a small vegetable garden in our backyard. It has grown in size over the years and it has now become a fun family activity. Every spring, family members get to plant their favorite vegetables. It takes hard work to prepare the garden, but being able to pick fresh vegetables for dinner every day is so worth it. We even recently experimented with planting cotton and had great success!

How do you handle criticism?
My Mom and Dad have always been active in canine rescue, so it was natural for me to rescue a little dog named Pebbles. She had been abandoned and left chained to a fence. Once we realized the family was not coming back for her, we rescued and adopted her. Pebbles taught me the meaning of forgiveness. Despite how badly she was treated by her former family, she showed us nothing but unconditional love.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Another activity that we do as a family is feeding the homeless. Whether it is preparing 125+ sack lunches on an early Saturday morning, or stopping by a local hamburger place to purchase food to distribute, it is always very well-received. The people we have met are so gracious and appreciative. It's amazing, and sad, how quickly that many meals can be passed out. It reminds me that service to others is a blessing.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I love to bake and try new recipes! My homemade iced sugar cookies, pineapple ice cream, pound cake, and tie-dyed spaghetti were all big hits! But Ive also learned that the secret to success in baking is to closely follow the recipe. Recently, when baking a homemade German Chocolate cake, the center didn't rise because I missed one of the ingredients. You can learn from your mistakes if you smile and keep a positive attitude!
