With my love of gymnastics I have learned to absolutely love going ziplining and doing rope courses. It's fun to take on the challenge and balancing high up in the air. It gives me such a thrill factor that I can't get anywhere else. Plus, being up in the air is just like gymnastics but not as dangerous (unless you aren't strapped in).
I am absolutely OBSESSED with cookies and cream ice cream and anything milk chocolate. It just tastes incredible and delicious. I am at a loss for words with how much I love these two items. If you bring me a bowl of cookies and cream ice cream with a milk chocolate bar on the side I will love you forever.
My friends are so valuable to me. They make me who I am because of my personality and theirs combined into one. In my free time I try to spend as much time as possible hanging out with friends. I pretty much have a sisterhood with my friends at gymnastics because we're with each other so much. My friends outside of gymnastics are just as important because I'm with them all throughout the school day or just with them in general. Friends mean so much to me and they are my second family.
Family means everything to me. I would do anything for my family they are so important to me. I don't know what I would do without my family. I have 2 brothers who are 29 and 24 years old. I am very excited because we recently had a new addition to my family...my new little niece Abigail. She is so precious and looks so much like my brother (the 29 year old one). I love my family and I know they love me back.
I have one adorable dog named Hershey (and no he's not the picture above, but he looked like that as a puppy). He is 6 years old and very very friendly. He loves anyone and everyone he meets and is very fluffy. I had to earn him from gymnastics. I was stuggling on one event for a very long time and my mom made a bet with me saying, that if I got a certain score on that event two meets in a row, I could get a dog... and I did! Fun fact about Hershey's name, the competition that determined if we got him was the Hugs and Kisses invitational held in Hershey area in Hershey, Pa. Because the competition was called that it made a very big contribution to his name.
I absolutely love traveling and exploring new cultures. Because of gymnastics, I have to do a lot of traveling, which started my love for it. I have been to the Bahamas three times, Hawaii twice, Florida many, many times, the Carolinas almost every summer, etc... It is always fun to explore new cultures and new people. Also, I love traveling with friends because we can learn together and get different perspectives (and because it's fun)!
Gymnastics pretty much consumes my life. I am a 9/10 competitive gymnast at Force Gymnastics. Gymnastics is a major thing in my life, if I wasn't doing it I'm not sure I'd be the same person. I've been doing gymnastics for 10 years and I love it very much! I have more than 150 medals and over 15 trophies from gymnastics in my time doing it so far. I have also quaified for the regional competition 2 years in a row and have made it to the state competition every year.
