Because I love food, I love to bake food from scratch. Some of the things I know how to bake are: cookies, cupcakes, scones, ice cream, fondant, meringue, and many more! Once it comes to baking, I believe that food is always better with simple ingredients that is natural and does not contain any ingredients that you can't pronounce. My mantra is: "If you can't pronounce it, then it's most likely bad for you!"
Another thing that I enjoy doing other than running is hiking in the wilderness. Not only is this another way to stay active, but it gets you to move outside and explore Nature's beauty. What I love most about hiking is that you start to have a connection between yourself and nature. By having that, you start to appreciate everything, from the trees, to the animals, and the fresh, crisp air.
Running is something that I truly love to do! I am currently on the Track team here at Golden Valley High School and my main events that I did last year was Triple Jump, Long Jump, and a bit of the 200m! Not only is Track an amazing sport, but it helps ease my mind whenever school and AP classes are stressful or if I'm having a rough day. Running is a therapeutic way to relieve stress. Once I am done with High School Track, I vow to stay active for the rest of my life. P.S. If you guys are interested in joining Track, please see Coach Lonnie when Winter and Spring tryouts are available!! P.P.S. During Spring, if you ever get a chance to stay a bit longer after school, come and support our Track team by cheering us on during home meets on Thursdays! We would love to see all your shining faces there! :)
One thing that I enjoy doing is arts and crafts. I usually do it on my free time whenever I am bored or if I want to be creative and make something new. I like making stuff because it's original and it made by love!
One of my favorite places to go to is Whole Foods! If you guys don't already know me, I'm a health-nut. What I love about shopping here is that the majority of their produce is 100% certified organic, their beef is grass-fed, the eggs are free-range, and they carry a lot of wild-caught seafood, which is a lot better than farm-raised. Plus, they have really good food stations that vary. Other than food, they also have fair-trade soaps, baskets, toiletries, and many more! I strongly believe that living a healthy lifestyle is the way to go!
Above all things, I LOVE God! He is the one who died for our sins and He is always here for me in any situation. I am Roman Catholic and I love my faith and the Lord. One thing I love to do to keep my faith is go to church every Sunday, read The Bible, and be involved in the church, such as my church choir at Saint Kateri Tekatwitha Catholic Church.
