If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
It's hard to pick just one thing to change when there is so much to choose from.  I would say I would like to change people's attitudes about the world.  I think that a lot of the problems today stem from the fact that people just don't care enough to instigate change.  If people would become more involved or proactive, maybe we could change more than just one thing about the world.

What makes a person respectable?
Doing what's right, even when it's difficult, being honest with others and yourself, and caring about what goes on with people. 

What do you look for in a friend?

The biggest thing I look for is loyalty.  I want someone who is going to be there for me, to back me up, or to help me out when I have problems.  I also look for people who are good-natured, funny, outgoing, and can carry out intelligent conversations.  Another big factor is being adventurous.  I love trying new things and I want to be around people who will experience them with me.

What are your hobbies?
I'm really into doing things outdoors: softball, golf, tennis, beach volleyball, wakeboarding, and pretty much any sport in general.  I also enjoy reading and writing, dancing, and playing frisbee in the rain. I can turn pretty much any activity into a fun time. 

Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
I have and I would.  I think that as you succeed in life, it is important to give back.  I have done a lot of volunteer work, at animal shelters and hospitals mostly, which is fulfilling.  I donate money to organizations that I feel really make a difference in people's lives, such as St. Jude's Children's Hospital and Make a Wish Foundation.  Charities do so much for families and people who have nothing, and knowing that you can help them is really awesome.

What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
There are A LOT of things I'd really like to accomplish in my life.  I would say short-term the thing I want most is to graduate college and get into law school somewhere good.  Long-Term, I would most like to write a bestselling book.

Who is your role model?
I don't really have one role model.  I have tried to mold myself from single characterisitcs I admired taken from many many different people. 

What trait most annoys you about other people?
People who are lazy and\or lack ambition.  There is nothing more frustrating to me than people who have the potential to make something out of themselves and waste it because they don't want to have to work hard at it.

What do you want to do for a living?
What do I **want** to do for a living:  bestselling author, professional athlete, or international supermodel
What do I *realistically* want to do for a living:  intellectual property or environmental attorney.  (yeah, a little bit more boring..)

If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
I am really good at thinking on my feet, so I would assess the situation quickly, find something to use as a weapon, fend off the attacker, and save my friend.

Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
 Yes, but sparingly, and only if there was no other way to save the situation, and only if I could justify its use on the intended recipient.

What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
In no particular order:
*Intelligence:  I have always been smart, and I pride myself on knowing a lot of information on a lot of subjects.  At the same time, this also means that I am smart enough to admit when I don't know something.
*Loyalty:  I think because I value it so much in my friends, I also value it a lot in myself.  If you are my friend I will stick by your side no matter what, and drop everything in a moment if you need my help.
*Outlook on Life:  I am very optimistic, and I tend to see the positive side or the humor in everything.  I love to smile and I love to laugh, and it tends to be infectious to the people I am around.
*Spontaniety:  I tend to be very adventurous, and live for the moment.  I love doing and trying new things, and keeping life interesting through random events or adventures.
*Honesty:  I always tell the truth, even if I think it might hurt someone.  I feel like it is better to know the truth than live in ignorance.

What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
*Honesty:  A lot of times, telling the truth means hurting the ones you love.
*Organization:  Anyone who has seen my room can tell you that it is in dire of need of organization help.
*Perfectionism:  I always want everything to be absolutely perfect, even though it's not always possible. 
*Distracion:  Because of my love of spontaniety, I tend to be easily distracted, which can sometimes interfere with getting things done as quickly as I'd like
*Cute Outfits:  I love buying new clothes and spend waaaay to much of my paychecks at the mall spending money.

Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage:  Being strong enough to do what you feel is right

Loyalty:  Being true to yourself and others, and sticking by them through the bad times as well as the good.

Intelligence:  Understanding what you do and do not know, and having the ability to express opinions on the topics in which you are informed.


Ambition:  Knowing what you want, and not being afraid to do whatever it takes to go after it.
