College, major: undecided

Goal: "As an adult, I hope to be a role model to children. I am considering working in a position where I could also be a coach. From personal experience, I know coaches really influence their athletes. I want to be a person that people can come talk to about anything. Most importantly, I want to glorify God in everything I do."

Favorite subject: psychology. "I am currently in AP Psychology and I love the challenge. I like how while making me understand the way I think, it also changes the way I think. It has caused me to really analyze everything I perceive."

Favorite book: "The Giver," Lois Lowry

Favorite musician: Mandisa

Role model: "I consider my basketball coaches, Coach Carroll and Coach England, role models. They are exactly what I want to be when I get older. They are absolutely hilarious, athletic, and everybody loves them. They're great coaches and great people. They are the people I can go talk to no matter what kind of day I'm having. They never fail to lighten the mood because they're always so positive."

Personal story: "I broke the St. Clair High School girls discus record three days after the boys discus record was broken, which had previously belonged to my dad for nearly 30 years. The morning after I won Courtwarming Queen, I wore my crown to take the ACT and got Bright Flight."
