“I don’t go out of my way to spend time with people. If I was to choose between spending time to myself and going out to a party or dance, then I wouldn’t go. I guess it’s just part of my personality. I’m just more of a shy introverted type of gal. I used to be more talkative, but when I w...

“One thing I’m very passionate about is caring for the homeless. Homeless people in our community struggle a lot, especially during the winter time and a lot of people don’t even take the time to say hello.

“I was doing the 400, which is once around the track. I started running, and then all of a sudden, I landed on my right leg kind of funny. It started to hurt and I fell down. I was in pain, a lot. In that moment, I was just upset because I knew I wasn’t going to go to regionals.”

“School basically [is on my mind]. I have so much stuff piled up my back. SAT, studying. I have tennis, presentations for my sister’s school and all of this school stuff going on.
