The best part about being on the Golden Eagle's Soccer team? Being surrounded by players and coaches that know playing soccer should ultimately glorify God.
My earliest soccer memory is … my first grade friends teasing me that my park district team was named the "camels". They thought they (the "prairie dogs") were going to beat us. They didn't.
Other than soccer, my favorite sport to play is … volleyball
When I have an hour of free time, I like to … hang out with friends or chill in my room with Spanish music.
If I won a million dollars, I would … donate half, pay off school loans, and save the rest of it. I am not one to spend money.
If someone would look at the songs on my iPod, I would be embarrassed for them to see I have … the Muppet movie soundtrack.
It is not good for you, but I still eat … pretty much anything that involves dark chocolate.
A place I would like to visit one day is … Spain!
If you could eat dinner with three other people (living or dead), who would they be and why? Steven Curtis Chapman because he is one of my favorite artists since childhood. Agatha Christie because she is my favorite author. Professor Jeanette Banashak, because she is one of the most interesting people I've ever met.
Who is your favorite Bible character and why? Paul because he lived unashamedly for God.
When surfing the Internet, what website do you visit the most frequently? Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube (the usual). Also a good amount of time on the Food Network.
What is something about you that other people don't know? I won't ever paint my nails any color other than a shade of red. Every other color just looks unnatural to me. Especially blue or green.
Who is your favorite Superhero and why? Quailman, he is one of the greatest cartoons from my childhood.
What cartoon character are you most like and why? I hate to admit it, but I love Phineas and Ferb. I'd be Ferb because he hardly ever talks.
After graduation, I would like to … teach in a bilingual elementary classroom and travel to Spanish speaking counties during the summers.
