I can light up a room with my endearing and contagious smile, and I love to give big hugs. I love my teachers and am constantly motivated by my big sister. I love watching myself in the mirror, watching sports on TV, eating, and giving hugs on demand.

I love anything WWE and go to see them live with my uncle Mike each year. I have a very big collection of WWE wrestlers. I love music and love to dance, especially at weddings. I am in band at my school and I play the drums too. I love going to the beach in the summer to listen to live music and dance. I love swimming in my pool and being outdoors, especially camping with my mom and sister!
