  1. When I graduate I want to: Go to college and become a we nurse
  2. The thing I love most about cheerleading is: the bonds that you get to make with every single girl and getting to go through every success and fail that we make as a team and getting to share the experience with all of them.
  3. Cheerleading has taught me: to never give up and always go above and beyond in everything you do
  4. My advice to girls who want to be cheerleaders: it’s tough and it’s a lot of hard work but in the end, it’s all worth it and you’ll never feel more proud of yourself
  5. I love my school because: it’s has given me so many opportunities and friendships I’ll never forget. The best four years of my life have been at the school and I love it because everyone made a big part in my life.
  6. My most memorable moment as a cheerleader: I can’t just pick one moment out of the three years I’ve cheered because every single moment I spend with those girls I’ll never forget and I will always have those memories with me forever.
  7. The person who has motivated me the most is and why: probably one of my best friends Sara Grubb because she showed me that even during hard times to keep going and everything will turn out how it’s supposed to be
  8. If I could change one thing in the world it would be: for people to stop hating everyone and for all the violence to stop and we all be kind to one another
