You belong to the Triad
and Beta clubs. Can you explain what they do?: Triad is somewhat similar to a
girls’ sorority. We each have big and little sisters, and we conduct an “initiation
week” each year where new members get to dress up in silly outfits for the
week. Beta is a club focused on service. Some of our favorite projects are
visiting the Avanté
nursing home with crafts and decorated cookies, and attending beach cleanups at
a mile in Daytona Beach that was adopted by Science NHS.
Favorite subject in school?: Some of my peers may find English class boring, but I love it
because my teacher gives us an opportunity to write about what matters to us
and the ability to form our own opinions on various subjects.
Favorite sport?: Although I play three different
sports, my favorite is definitely baton twirling. I thank not only my parents,
but my coaches for introducing me to this sport eight years ago, when I was in
the fourth grade at Fruitland Park Elementary. This sport teaches me to have
goals, how to have grit and passion, and how to manage my time with a busy
competition schedule. I have gained lifelong sisters throughout my career as a
competitive twirler at Epic Twirl.
Favorite athlete?: Tim
Tebow! He is a great example of someone who follows God and encourages others
to do so as well. I admire his faith, character, and his positive
Other interests?: I
love to do anything if it involves boating! My family and I love to go
scalloping every year at Crystal River, and I also go paddleboarding as well. I
love watching sports, especially the Atlanta Braves and the Florida Gators. I
also love to spend time with my family and friends.
Favorite musician?: I can’t
just pick one because I love many musical artists. But my top two are Thomas
Rhett and Kenny Chesney, because their music is not what a typical country singer
would sound like. It was so much fun seeing them both in concert together last
Goals?: I would love to attend the
University of Florida and major in veterinary science, minoring in political
science. One of my dreams since I started baton was to twirl for UF and be part
of the Gatorette team as well. I want to follow in my grandfather’s footsteps
and own my own vet clinic.
True or false: “I can’t
live a day without social media”: False. I love social media like any other teenager, but I prefer
speaking with others face to face, not behind a screen. I wish future
generations had the same childhood as I did, where they could make real
relationships without the use of a phone.
Biggest pet peeve?: People
not putting their 100 percent effort into something. Whether it be in school,
being in a club, sports, or anything in general, one must put in the hard work
necessary for something to get done. If I say that I will do something, I try
my hardest to make sure that my full effort is put into it.
