Haven’t looked yet.

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why?

They showed me you have to work for what you want, no one is going to do it for you.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? “Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.” – Will Smith (The Pursuit of Happiness)

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Ranch sunflower seeds and Doritos.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 2:50 p.m. because school is dismissing.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? CP because of my initials.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Mercy Sacred Heart Home.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? How fast I can eat sunflower seeds, my teammates would know.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would go into the future to see the person I will have become.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask Neil Armstrong what it was like being on the moon and so far away from Earth.
