Summer 2012 Q&A

Of course Hurricanes hockey is your favorite sport, but what sports are you following now that the season is over?
Well I’m definitely going to be watching the Stanley Cup playoffs, but I also try to follow baseball, although it’s just not as exciting! I am definitely going to keep up with the St. Louis Cardinals, though.

What was the best summer vacation you ever took?
For my senior trip we went to Italy, Greece and the Greek Isles. The sights you see over there are like no other. So beautiful!

What is your favorite summertime treat?
Snow cones!

Birthday cake or cupcakes?
Definitely have to go with birthday cake. You can cut one slice of various size and still only have one slice, but with cupcakes you have to eat a minimum of two to be satisfied.

What would I find in your fridge right now?
Leftovers from Taco Tuesday, yum!

What is the last movie you went to see?
I recently went and saw "Red Tails"! It was an amazing movie.

What is your favorite North Carolina beach?
Hmm, a beach is a beach in my opinion, but there’s something about Ocean Isle that I love.

What are some things you can’t live without?
Family, friends, my dog, naps and sports. What else do you need?

What is your current ringtone?
I honestly just had to look at my phone and check because I rarely turn my phone off vibrate. But it’s just the normal iPhone ringer, pretty boring.

If you could buy a plane ticket to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Probably Hawaii. My roommate just got back from there and talks all the time about how amazing it was.

Take the winning shot or make the pass that leads to the winning shot?
Take the winning shot, definitely.

Which do you like more and why: the black jersey, the red jersey or the white jersey?
I like the black jersey best. It makes the guys look more intimidating.

In your own words, what does it mean to be a role model?
To me, being a role model means to be looked upon as an example and having pride when people want to be like you.

What was the best birthday gift you ever received?
Has to be when I turned 16 and my parents surprised me with a 2000 Toyota 4Runner, that thing was a tank.

Beach or Pool?
Lake!

What’s your must-DVR show?
I don’t have a DVR, unfortunately, but I do have Netflix and have been watching 90210 like it’s my job.

Do you have anything exciting planned for Memorial Day Weekend?
I don’t have anything planned yet, if anything I’ll go home to my lake house on Lake Gaston.



2011-12 Season Q&A

Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter?

@90sgirlproblem because I’m a child of the 90s, @AutoCorrects but I probably shouldn’t because I always burst out laughing if I read them during class, and of course @canes_gameday so I can follow the Canes wherever I go!

What are the top three things on your bucket list?
1. SWIM WITH DOLPHINS! (If I don’t get to do this my life won’t be complete.)
2. Go sky diving.
3. Get over 1,000 twitter followers ;)

What is the wallpaper on your cell phone?
I change it frequently, but right now it’s a coral reef with lots of fish to match my blue phone case!

If you could have been born in another country, what country would you have liked to have grown up in?
Australia! It’s so beautiful, and I would love to have an Aussie accent.

What is your favorite app on your phone or Ipod?
Shaazam. It literally listens to a song that’s playing, and tells you what the name is and who sings it!

How did you meet your best friend?
We’ve gone to the same school together since 4th grade. We sat next to each other in class and just bonded. We’re even neighbors now!

If you could take home one animal from the zoo, what would it be and why?
A penguin because they are absolutely adorable!

If you could sit on the front row at any concert, whose concert would you want to see?
Definitely Blake Shelton or Brad Paisley! They look like they have so much fun on stage and give amazing performances, and I would love to see them up close!

What is the craziest thing your parents did to embarrass you growing up?
Basically any time my parents thought it would be appropriate to dance…

When did you go to your first NHL hockey game?
When I was seven! I had just moved to Raleigh and we got to sit in a box and watch the Canes play!

What is your dream job, other than being a member of the Storm Squad?
I really want to be a DJ on a country music radio station!

What is the strangest thing in your refrigerator right now?
Well I don’t know about my refrigerator but we have about 12 Cookout milkshakes of various flavors in my freezer!

In your opinion, what is the best kept secret in Raleigh?
Falls Lake! There is so much to do there, and it’s never crowded.

What is your favorite quote?
“Love must be sincere; Hate what is evil, hold on to what is good.” Romans 12:9

Where is your favorite place to shop?
Either Forever 21 or Uptown Cheapskate. I’m on a budget!

What is the most memorable sporting event that you’ve attended?
Being able to go to Orlando, Florida to watch my NC State Wolfpack beat West Virginia in the Champs Sports Bowl.

What is the best thing you ever won at the fair?
When I was 9 I won a ring toss game and got a goldfish that I named Sharky. He lived for the longest time.

What is your favorite flavor of cupcake?
Can’t beat vanilla with vanilla icing!

Who is the most interesting person you have ever met?
I got to meet Mia Hamm. She was such an inspiration to me when I played soccer. Definitely one of the greatest days of my life.

If you could be anyone in the World’s personal assistant for a day, who would it be?
I would be Lady GaGa’s assistant, just to see what ACTUALLY goes on in her head.

If you were in the Miss America contest, what would your special talent be?
Juggling a soccer ball! My record is 482.

If you could travel to any point in time, where would you go and why?
I’d want to go to the World’s Fair in Chicago in 1933. I am absolutely fascinated by that event. They had the first ferris wheel and introduced rubber and power-steering to the public!
