My friends would be surprised to know that: I love to paint, especially with acrylics. My grandmother, my older sister and I would paint all day, just on simple white paper. We would look at paintings, craft books and instructional books for inspiration. It was always so fun learning and teaching each other new tricks. When my sister and I improved our skills a bit, my grandmother bought us a few small canvases that we created our paintings on and gave them as gifts to our friends. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to paint anymore, but I still enjoy it!
My favorite person to follow on Twitter: Will Smith. I’m not really sure why but I have always been fascinated with him. He has a wide range of talents from singing to producing and of course acting. He also seems to be a decent role model for kids and a great father.
The coolest person that follows me on Twitter: Anyone interested in fitness or nutrition. I want to be a nutritionist and would love to have the opportunity to inspire people to become active.
My celebrity crush: I’m not much of a celebrity follower, but again, Will Smith is absolutely my favorite.
Three people I’d like to have dinner with (living or dead): Will Smith (I might be obsessed), Rosa Parks and God. I think these people together would make for an interesting conversation. I would love to get their opinions on my life philosophies. Also, speaking to God in person would just be so thrilling!
If I had to watch one movie or TV show over and over, it would be: Fired Up! This movie makes me roll on the floor laughing every time!
The top three items on my bucket list: Climb a mountain, visit the pyramids, and see The Northern Lights.
My favorite websites/blogs: Anything with recipes — I love to cook and create new meals from ones I find online.
My favorite app: Pandora, because I always have access to different types of music.
The most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me during a game: My bloomers came up while doing a chair stunt, and my bright pink underwear was hanging out the whole time.
My favorite professional team: Orlando Magic. You have to support the hometown team!
If you looked at the “most played” songs on my iPod, you’d see a lot of: Christian rock and 90s pop.
My worst habit: Nail biting, ugh!
The talent I’d most like to have: The ability to sing like Christina Aguilera.
My one guilty pleasure: Anything chocolate, covered in peanut butter!
My worst date: I honestly haven’t been on a date that even qualifies as bad. Either I have been very lucky or I haven’t been on many dates!
I’d want my last meal to be: Parmesan crusted chicken breast and a loaded sweet potato from Long Horn.
