What is your favorite food: I love any food that can be eaten with a spoon- mashed potatoes, soup, and especially icre cream!
What is your favorite TV show: I don’t have much time for TV but I love watching the Cosby show!
Current #1 most played song on your iPod: Right now Beyoncé’s “I Was Here,” because I will be singing it in my Local Distinguished Young Woman program when handing over my title. It was our Self- Expression song for Nationals so it means a lot to me.
What is your favorite quote: My favorite quote is, “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.”
What is your most hated household chore: I am actually a lover of household chores, so I love to sweep, dust, and cook!
Plan ahead OR procrastinate? I both plan ahead and procrastinate!
Paper OR plastic? I don’t use paper or plastic bags that the grocery store because I bring reusable fabric bags!
Glass half-full OR glass half-empty? The glass is definitely half-full!
Introvert OR extrovert? I’m an immense extrovert!
Cats OR Dogs? I love both dogs and cats, but let’s face it, dogs are undoubtedly better!
Morning person OR night person? I’m most certainly a night owl!
If you could be any color crayon, what would you be and why? I would want to be one of those multicolored sparkly crayons! I actually gave a speech to my senior class about how everyone of us has something different to offer, similar to crayons in a Crayola box, and I am definitely a sparkly rainbow kind of girl!
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you absolutely need for survival? I wouldn’t be able to survive on a deserted island without my Burt’s Bees chapstick, lots and lots of journals, and buckets of art supplies!
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be? I don’t know if I would want to trade places with anyone, but I would certainly love to meet Kari Jobe. She is my favorite Christian artist and her music is indescribably beautiful.
What is your biggest fear? I think my biggest fear is failure. I never want to let others down. This makes my drive to succeed that much stronger!
What is one goal you have set for yourself and achieved? I set a goal to be my absolute best self throughout the Distinguished Young Woman program, and that got me to Nationals! I continue to strive to be my best self every day.
Describe your single-most favorite moment from your Distinguished Young Women experience. Of all my incredible experiences it is extremely difficult to choose one favorite. Every single moment had something to offer: making new friends, improving public speaking and interview skills, learning walking routines, working hard in fitness, doing service, hearing your name called as a representative. Words simply can’t describe what this program has done for me. I think the most rewarding part is teaching current participants. It’s so great to pass on stories of my experience and help the girls in any way I can before I pass on my title to one of them. Distinguished Young Woman is like a family- past participants return to enhance this program for future young women. I can’t wait to be a judge or committee member in the future to assist in this legacy.
