Sarah Erickson - Top 10

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
If I could change my name, I wouldnt change it all. I love the name that my parents gave me and I am proud of it! Although, I had a much different answer in kindergarten. Throughout my year of kindergarten, I would tell everyone my name was Caroline. There was a character in a book I read named Caroline and for some reason, I decided that it was going to be my new name!

What according to you is a true friend?
My favorite day of the week is Sunday. In my eyes, Sunday is a day dedicated to relaxing and preparing for the upcoming week. Also, you cant beat being able to spend quality time with family members who are normally working on the weekdays!

How do you handle criticism?
My favorite movie as a child was Charlottes Web. I can remember watching it over and over again, never getting sick of it! I found it fascinating that the farm animals could talk and I adored Wilbur the pig. I loved the movie so much, I remember one day asking my mom if we could live on a farm so I could have my own talking farm animals!

When was the last time you tried something new?
Although I dont play any sports myself, I absolutely love watching baseball. Some of my favorite memories I have with my dad include driving down to Wrigley Field and watching the Chicago Cubs. I will never forget staying up late with my family to watch the final game in the World Series and seeing the Cubs WIN it, the first time in 108 years. Go CUBS!
