Karina Mendez

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
When I walk into a room my theme song would be Eye of the Tiger. I would choose this song because its so upbeat and it is so motivational. The music alone just makes you feel motivated the lyrics just adds to it! Also, it makes me feel motivated when Im working out and I intentionally put this song on because it makes me want to try harder and push myself.

What according to you is a true friend?
My 14 tear old brother and I have a similar taste in style so whenever I go shopping he always comes with me to help decide on what to buy and he also helps me pick out my everyday clothes. Whenever we go to the mall we go straight to Zumiez mostly for their cutting edge clothing. Also because I get to bond with my brother as he gets older.

How do you handle criticism?
My favorite family vacation would have to be our last trip to Mexico. We stay with our aunts and cousins sometimes, its a tight fit withal of us in one house. But we always wake up early every morning so it feels like the days last longer. I especially enjoy it when we go to El Ojo de Agua and swim with the fish.

When was the last time you tried something new?
There is absolutely nothing else I love to do more than play soccer. A major reason I love to play is because my family loves to and we occasionally go out and play against each other. We always fall but get back up and laugh with each other, it is how we connect. Even my one year old brother loves to kick the ball.
