Favorite class: Mr. LeMay’s sociology class. I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did, but it was fascinating learning about different social behaviors and interactions.

Top teacher: Dan Chouinard; he taught algebra 3/trig my junior year. Mr. Chouinard was always willing to help anyone who needed it, and challenged me to go beyond what I thought I was capable of achieving.

Extracurriculars: Fellowship of Christian Athletes and National Honor Society

After graduation: I am attending Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights.

Best friends: Jenna Brown and Cheyenne Smith. There is never a dull moment when we are together.

Favorite singers: Ed Sheeran, Carrie Underwood

Favorite musical groups: Coldplay, The Fray

Favorite actor: Emma Watson

Favorite TV show: “The Voice”

Hobbies: Spending time with friends and family, playing guitar and piano, bowling, shopping, and traveling

Favorite game or outdoor activity: Basketball

Favorite food: Chicago-style pizza

Biggest fear: Not being able to find a job after I graduate college

Least-favorite class: Consumer ed

What makes your blood boil? People who choose to be lazy

What kind of music makes your skin crawl? Screamo and heavy metal. Other than that, I listen to just about anything.

Favorite hangouts: My friends’ houses, the mall, visiting family, or just spending a nice day outdoors

High school survival guide: Never be afraid to ask questions or get extra help. Trust me, it will pay off.

Useless knowledge: Learning the different parts of an insect for the bug project in biology freshman year

I’m in the dictionary next to: Diligent. I don’t like to give up on anything too easily.

Secret twin: I would say Taylor Swift, since that used to be one of my nicknames when I was younger.

Personal trivia: Last summer, I got stuck in the middle of a zipline, and the worker there had to come and retrieve me. Let’s just say it was an interesting experience.

Dream job: It would be interesting to travel and go to a Third World country and do some missionary work for them.

Trading places: With someone who lives and works in downtown Chicago. I have always liked to visit bigger cities, so I think I would enjoy the many sights and opportunities there.

Trading spaces: Hawaii. After the long winter we had in Sterling, it would be nice to go somewhere warm!

Read this: “The Fault in Our Stars,” by John Green. If you haven’t already read it, you should read it!

Shout out to: My family, Kay Lund, Lisa Hartz, and the Shipman family. Thanks for your continual support and encouragement throughout the years! Love you guys!
