"Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable." -Coco Chanel
On the 29th of April I was born at Stillwater hospital. Hi I'm Greta, although I was born in Stillwater, I live in Saint Croix falls, where I grew up in a tall grey farmhouse. My family includes my Dad and Mom, Sylvan and Lisa, as well as my two sisters. The oldest being my sister Cara and my second oldest Anja. Who are currently both away at college. Along with my family we also have three dogs, Gunner who is a chocolate lab, Bohdie who is an Austrailian Shepherd, and my own person dog Bailey who is also an Austrailain Shepherd. In addition, I also participate in Track and Field. I am a hurdler, one of my highlights include this past year when I won 100m Hurdles at conference. As well as barrel racing, where I compete in NBHA as well as local shows with my horses, I have been riding horses since I was two and a half. This has always and will always be a big part of my life. Some of my biggest motivations would be my family. My family has always taught be to strive for the very best in life, and give everything 100% effort and without hard work you will acheive nothing. In the future I plan on attending college and furthering my education. Finally, my dream for far down the road, is to create a horse rescue facility where I purchase horses that might end up in slaughter and help give them a second chance through either adding weight on them, training them, ect., then once they are stable again, I would sell them to forever homes.
"Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves." -Milan Kundera
