Hometown: Castle Rock
Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: My best friend and I decided it would be a great bonding experience to walk to the local park and sleep in the field. It was beautiful just laying on the turf, looking at the stars and talking about how we would be in each others weddings. We had taken our shoes off and set them right by where we slept. The next morning, we woke up to a soccer game that had started around us and our shoes were chewed into little pieces all over the field! In the middle of the night, a coyote had decided to have a midnight snack...I'm just glad it decided to snack on the shoes and not us!
Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: I make the best chocolate chip cookies! I gave a bag of my homemade cookies to my fitness trainer Kent. Kent said he would never eat them because they weren't healthy, but that he would give them to his girlfriend, Heather. I ended up getting to meet Heather and I asked her how she enjoyed the cookies I made. Her response was "What cookies?" Kent had taken a bite of one cookie and liked it so much that HE ate the entire bag! They must have been some AMAZING cookies!
Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: I would take a trip to McDonalds and buy 10 million meals on the dollar menu and feed 999,999 people who haven't had a meal in a long time! Of course, I'd buy myself a hamburger too. After all of the healthy dining choices I have been making as Miss Colorado Teen USA, it would be nice to splurge on a yummy burger :-)
Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: Regardless of her political party, definitely Sarah Palin! I see myself in her. I always thought about a future in politics and because of her, I plan to have one. She even inspired me to run for Student Council Vice President and I won. I admire many things about her.
Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: Sometimes on a Friday night, I love spending time with adults and talking politics and other times I love going to a movie or a party with my friends. I can be an old soul or a sixteen year old...I love both sides to me!
