I live with my mom and dad. I have two brothers and one sister. They are all older than me. My sister, Ashlyn, lives on campus at Northern Illinois University. Her and I are extremely close. It’s always been the two of us living with our parents, so when she moved out to go to college I got pretty lonely. We facetime or text at least once a week. My two brothers are much older. Adam, 27 years old, and Dan, 26 years old, are my half brothers, but we don’t say that in my family. My family is very close. I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania surrounded by my parents, Ashlyn and Dan, my mom’s side of the family, and all Dan’s uncles and aunts.

I could eat any form of potato, especially french fries, every single day. The only radio station we got consistently in the small town I am from was a country station, so I also love country music. My favorite band, 5 Seconds of Summer, is not country though. I have seen them in concert at least three times. I am very grateful for my parents because they give me as much as they possibly can and they’re very supportive. I’m interested in joining a program called Global Leadership Adventures which allows teenagers to volunteer in other countries to help with children and building schools and medical facilities. There are over 50 clubs at Niles North and I wish that I was part of more of them. I have participated in softball and basketball both freshman and sophomore year. I plan to move forward with softball but not basketball. At the beginning of the second semester a friend of mine started Sign Language Club which I take part in. I wish I participated in animal
