What school do you currently attend?

What are some of your favorite hobbies?
I am a cheerleader and I run track. Anything that keeps me active, I enjoy! I am planning on leading the first-ever cheerleading preseason at my school in the start of next fall. I have become really invested in this sport, as well as the girls on the team. For track, I run the 400 meter event. Both of these sports keep me happy and engaged. I received a "pi" award last year for completing these sports on a varsity level. I also participate in the photo program at my school. I have learned how to process 35mm film and process photos in the dark room.
What is your favorite family holiday? Why?
My favorite family holiday is most likely Christmas. We are always together and have countless traditions. My brothers and I usually bake cookies and attempt to sing carols.
What is your favorite thing about your state?
I would say Hershey Park is my favorite place in my state. My family and I try to get there in the summer time and explore the park. My favorite part is always creating my own chocolate bar. I also really enjoy learning about the history in Pennsylvania anywhere I go.
If you could live anywhere else in the world where would it be?
I would want to live in New York City! I absolutely love the big city. I'm there most of the time because it's only an hour-long train ride away, but living there would be a completely different experience.
What do you expect to gain by participating in pageants? Why?
I hope to gain new friendships and confidence. I keep in touch with a lot of the girls who have competed in pageants with me, and I love that! I also hope that by socializing with these amazing people that I will open up and be more outgoing. I also think that pageants play a big role in starting charities. I want to become involved in as much as possible. Being a role model is really important to me, so I will try my hardest to be the best I can be!
