Who on your team cracks you up the most: Natalie Wigand — We have been best friends since kindergarten, so we have many inside jokes. We can always find something to laugh about.
Complete the sentence: I could binge watch ‘The Office’ for hours on end.
What teacher has had the greatest impact on your life, and why: Mr. Mauck — He teaches some of my favorite subjects, AP Bio and A&P. This is my second year having him, and I love going to class everyday. He teaches his subjects very well, but also adds in stories and life lessons. I always laugh in his class and I never get bored.

People would be surprised to know what about you: I love to fish, but I don't eat fish.
Piece of advice you’ve gotten that has stuck with you: My oldest sister Rachel always gives me advice. One thing that has always stuck with me is "Life is a journey that is not going to be easy, but it has a funny way of working out. Keep working hard and being you. Everything will turn out okay."
Who do you consider to be your heroes: My mom and oldest sister Rachel.
Physical feature that makes you unique: My blonde hair — everyone tells me they wish they had it.
Oddest piece of trivia that you know: It is impossible to sneeze with your eyes opened.
I hate to admit it, but my parents are right about: Everything. No matter what, they are always right.

No matter what, My mom and my sister Regan can always cheer me up.
