10 Things to Know About Me

Hello! Well, this is the first post on my blog (YAY). I will mostly be sharing little tidbits about special moments in my life. The following are ten things that define me and will help you get to know the type of person I am.

1. I am blessed to live with my family in a very nice house. My family consists of my mother, my father, and my younger sister; all of whom, I love very much.

  2. I go to school at Fairview High School in Boulder and will (FINALLY) be a junior during the school year of 11-12.

3.  I am an Open Champion Irish Step Dancer. What that means is that I have won competitions until I have reached the highest level in the Irish Dance World. I am eligible to compete in the Western Regionals (Oireachtas (uh-rock-tas)) and the Nationals. I am working this year to place in the Top Ten at Oireachtas this year and qualify for Worlds. This is a big part of my life; I go to practice in Denver up to four times a week at least 2 hours each time.

 4. I have an adorable white pekignese named Sasha that I love dearly.


5. In addition to Irish Dance, I also do jazz, modern, contemporary, lyrical, and hip hop (though very badly...). I love being able to so many different dance styles.

6. I love to sing (though I'm not the best at it (: ) and am a member of the school choir.

 7. I have been playing piano since the age of seven. I love it so much. I also accompany for the choir at my school.

8.  I am a Christian and have a relationship with the Lord and Jesus. They love me. I love them.

9.  I attend Young Life through my school. Young Life is an organization that encourages high school kids to choose to have a relationship with Jesus and the Lord. I have two extraordinary leaders, Kara and Carlee, to whom I owe much of my happiness. I love them with all my heart!

10. I am blessed with so many friends. They all help me to be a better person and without them I would be nothing. I love them to the ends of the earth.
