I love my school, but I almost went to: University of Texas at Austin
My best physical feature is: My abs, I try to do a quick work out every night before I go to bed just to stay in shape.
If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be:The Dark Knight
If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Lil' Wayne, Kevin Rudolf, Saving Abel, and T.I.
My worst habit is: Biting my finger nails when I get nervous, that's probably why I could never have long nails.
My game day superstitions are: Before I leave for a game, I go through my cheer bag a few times to make sure I am not forgetting anything, especially my poms; also I always make sure I have my lucky hair tie on me.
I'd love to trade places for a day with: Jessica Alba
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: I wish I could read a textbook and actually remember and comprehend everything that I just read; then I would not have to study as hard for tests.
These three things top my bucket list: Somehow pay back my parents for everything they have given me, travel the world and have a family.
I'd want my last meal to be: One of my favorite restaurants is Duff's. I could live on their chicken wings, French fries, and loganberry.
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: Nothing specific, but any fall from a stunt or a mount during a game, in front of everyone, would be pretty embarrassing.
Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My cell phone, tanning lotion, and my friends to keep me company.
My favorite sport and professional sports teams are: Cheerleading is unquestionably my favorite sport. I couldn't live without it, but I am also a huge football and hockey fan too; the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabres are my favorite professional teams.
My one guilty pleasure is: I have to straighten my hair every day; I will not go a day with it curly, most people don't even know I have curly hair.
My celebrity crush is: It's a tie between Channing Tatum and David Beckham. I love them both.
Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: My grandpa (whom I never got to meet), my grandma and other grandpa who passed away when I was little, Walt Disney, and Heath Ledger.
My friends would be surprised to know that I: I like to paint and sew; I even used to take painting classes outside of school for fun.
The next risk I want to take is: I want to get a standing full
The reality show I'd do best on is:The Real World
The worst date I've ever been on was: I haven't really been on that bad of a date yet, just some extremely awkward ones.
