Cheerleader of the Week
The Magic's Jessica, a country girl in a big city, wants to face her fear of heights by jumping out of a plane.
Hometown: Orlando, FL
College: Florida State University
Major: Recreation and Leisure Services Administration with an emphasis in Special Event Planning.
My friends would be surprised to know that I: Have lived in Florida my entire life and never been water skiing. I am really good at snow skiing though, because I’ve been just about every year since I was 5 years old!
My coolest Facebook friend is: My sister, because she’s a Disney princess in Hong Kong and mini-celebrity there, and has traveled all over the world doing amazing things! She’s basically my other half, so she has to be pretty cool!
My celebrity crushes are: Channing Tatum, because he’s an amazing dancer, Jude Law because of his adorable accent, Matthew McConaughey because he has an incredible body, and Johnny Depp because he’s the best looking pirate I know!
Three people I’d like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Although I know it’s more than three, all of the above…
My favorite Web Sites are: Pinterest and Facebook.
My favorite phone app is: Instagram, because I love taking photos and documenting my fun life, and creating instavideos with my friends.
If you looked at the “most played” songs on my iPod, you’d see a lot of: Country music. I’m definitely a country girl living in a big city.
If I had to watch one movie or TV Show over and over and over again, it would be: Sex and the City.
My worst habit is: Being a perfectionist.
The talent I’d most like to have that I don’t currently possess is: The ability to sing (in places besides my shower and alone in my car).
Top 3 items on my bucket list are: To travel the world, walk at a red carpet event, and to face my fear of falling (maybe skydiving or zip-lining?).
The most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me during a game is: A Valentine’s Day skit in which I got “pied” in the face by our mascot, Stuff, for pretending to be a Minnesota Timberwolves fan in front of thousands of people. I had so many fans come up to me and point me out during that game!
My one guilty pleasure is: Eating sweets! I love just about anything and everything!
I’d want my last meal to be: A delicious steak with mashed potatoes, and a lava cake for my dessert!
The worst date I’ve ever been on: I didn’t actually know it was the worst until AFTER the date. We went on one casual date to the movies, and then I got phone calls and messages for several years (it still might not be over yet), even after being in a relationship now with someone else for over two years. I’ve never known someone to act like that after one date, so it was a little strange, to say the least!
If I could change one thing in this world, it would be: People’s inability to accept others for who they are. Everyone is meant to be different, and that’s what makes relationships fun! The world would be a much better place if people were able to just be tolerant of each other.
