Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: One of the craziest things that I have ever done is the Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags over Georgia. I went to Six Flags with a bunch of my friends one summer and we came across the Dare Devil Dive, a ride that takes two people up 10-stories high in a harness, then lets them free-fall and plunge towards the ground at 50 miles per hour. All of my friends wanted me to do this because they know how terrified I am of heights. After a few minutes of thinking it over, I decided I was not going to let my fears hold me back, and I did it!
Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: I enjoy cooking a lot of different things but one dish that I really like to make is cheesy enchiladas. As for baking, I enjoy making red velvet cakes. My grandmother gave me her recipe and it is the best tasting cake that I have ever eaten!
Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: If I were given 10 million dollars I would first splurge on some new shoes, earrings, and purses to add to my collection. I would also give a portion of it to Camp Kemo so they could purchase land and be in a position to build a new site to hold camp each year for children living with cancer.
Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: If I could meet one celebrity I believe it would be Bill Cosby, Jr. Mr. Cosby is an intelligent and articulate man who I see as one of the world's most respected, well-known entertainers and comedians. Throughout his career he has demonstrated a commitment to his education. He received his doctorate in Education from the University of Massachusetts, which to me was quite an accomplishment given everything that he was doing at the time; television, films, raising a family to mention a few.
Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: One thing that makes me unique from other people is that I am not in a hurry to grow up. My parents have always taught me to embrace every moment as it comes so later in life when I look back on my teen years I will have no regrets.
