I was born on July 30th, 2002 in Cambridge, MN. It's a very small, slightly nonexistent town, but it was my home until 2005. When I was born, my older brother Daniel was already 2, and not quite ready to share the attention with me, however, I was also the first female baby on either side of my family since 1980, which was an accomplishment on my behalf, therefore, both sides of my family spoiled the tiny girl who would grow up to be, well, me. In 2005 when my little sister was born, we moved from our small town to a tiny house in Siren where I would only live for about 6 months, until my little brother came along. We moved from our house to an apartment in Grantsburg where I would spend most of my childhood, enjoying life, making friends, and even more memories. On November 12th, 2012, I would embark on my journey to St. Croix Falls, where I am today. It was also 7 years ago today as I write this.
During the school year, I am a participant in Cheerleading, as well as Track and Field, and this year I am involved in royalty, which is a new change of pace for me, traveling from town to town in parades and making little girls shriek in excitement seeing princesses making their days even better than a parade full of candy. I love my royalty family, which has brought about many friends along the way. When I'm not involved in school activities I am usually playing the piano or reading any book I can get my hands on, which currently is, "The Picture of Dorian Gray," by Oscar Wilde. Reading in my opinion expands the mind as well as the imagination.
My motivation in school as well as in life is my friends, and the sports that I play. I used to think sports were irrelevant and that the people that were in sports were complaining too much about how tired they were all the time, or that they went home late due to practice and when I became a freshmen in High School and started cheer, I still didn&spos;t understand, however that wasn't much of a sport, more of a game of, "Memorize the motion with the screaming,"and it didn't make sense to me. The spring of that year I joined track, and I found my love for running, and the pure adrenaline. However, that brought on shin splints, pain, plenty of ice and sports tape as well as late nights, so I am happy that I found track as a motivational strategy.
My current plans for the future some would find complex, however I find it inevitable for myself. My plans include joining the United States Army under Combat Medic, and after basic training, I plan on attending WITC-Ashland for a degree in Medical Assistant, as well as a degree in Registered Nursing. I have always wanted to help people but never knew how, so I attended a WITC seminar, went through what most classes would look like for a certain career and none of them spoke to me until I found the nursing course that I loved so much, and even made friends whilst in the seminar only making it a better learning experience by growing with others.
