Why you chose to attend NC State: Both of my parents went to state and I was raised loving state. Its close to home and I love the red and white. They have a good first year program and excellent resources for schooling. I would never go any plave else.
Why you chose to be a part of the Cheer program/family at NC State: I love cheerleading and all I've heard about the NC State cheer program was great things. Everybody spoke very highly of both coaches and both teams are like a family. I wanna stay in shape and I love being busy and having a schedule. Ever since I was 2 ive been going to the State football games and all I do is watch the cheerleaders. The first time I watched them I knew thats what I wanted to do.
Favorite memory as a cheerleader at NC State: My first appearance and putting on my uniform. To look back and see a pic of me when I was 1 1/2 years old in a state cheerleading outfit and then to actually put one on is great. At the appearance I had so much fun with everyone that went and having little girls and boys look up to you is amazing. My first appearance, the whole thing, was my best memory so far.
Favorite hobby outside of NC State Cheer: I love to dance and go fishing
What you like the most about cheering at NC State: I love having so many close friends its like another family. Everyone is so great and everytime im at cheerleading I have a wonderful time.
What you hope to accomplish here as a student and an athlete when you have graduated: I would like to graduate in five years with a masters in accounting and I would like to cheer every year. As an athelete I hope I can give people a responsible person to look up to and beome a good role model. I want to be the best athelete and student I can be.
