What motivates you to work hard?

I always need to have a goal in mind. It helps me when everyone around me is also motivated to do their best.

What keeps you from  working hard?

When people have bad attitudes or when people aren’t trying as hard as I know they can.

Are  you shy or outgoing?

I tend to be shy around new people but the more I get to know you the more outgoing I will become.

After a full day with people are you ready to snuggle up at home or head out with friends?

I like to have my own time and I can get stressed and overwhelmed if I spend a lot of time with people.

If comfortable, are you loud and crazy or calm and quiet?

Most of the time I am pretty quiet but if I'm over tired or excited about something I can be crazy.

Are you a listener or a talker?

I am always ready to listen to someone but it’s always nice to talk to someone too.

Are you "go with the flow" or more of a control freak?

I tend to just follow what everyone else does. I don’t really like being in charge and controlling people.

Do you like to take charge or are you comfortable letting somebody else call the shots?

I’m comfortable letting someone else take control as long as it’s best for the team.

Do you like to blend in or stand out?

Blending in makes me more comfortable but in some situations standing out is good.

Are you neat or messy?  Organized or disorganized?

I call it organized clutter. I keep my school and dance stuff organized but my room is kind of messy but I know where everything is.

Are you a perfectionist or ok with "good enough"?

I’m more of a perfectionist. I want to be the best I possibly can for myself and my team.

What drives you crazy when working with other people?

If they aren’t being helpful or if they aren’t on task.

Is it easy or hard for you accept a compliment?  How about a criticism/critique?

I tend to blow off compliments and sometimes i’m not in the mood to take critiques which i’ve been working on.

Are you easily distracted or can  you generally maintain your focus?

If something big is happening at school or at home I can sometimes let it get in the way but at practice I try to stay focused and ready.

Do you wait to be included or do you jump right in?

As a shy person, I normally wait to be included but if i’m comfortable with the people I will jump right in.

Do you get along with  your parents and siblings?

I get along with my parents most of the time. My brother and I sometime have arguments but we get along most of the time.

Is your glass half full or half empty?

I would say my glass is normally half full. I try to keep a positive attitude about life.

What's your favorite holiday and favorite holiday tradition?

My favorite holiday is christmas and my favorite tradition is having my family christmas on my moms side. I have about 35 cousins on her side so it’s cool to get to see everyone.

Do you find it hard or easy to keep a secret?

It’s pretty easy to keep a secret but if it’s something that is serious and could be dangerous then i’ll tell someone.

If you had a warning label what would yours say?

I’m more than a pretty face.

Do stressful times make you dig deeper or shut down?

During stress I like to challenge myself but sometimes I need time to process and cool down.

Do you find performing (or being in front of an audience) exhilarating or anxiety producing?

I get a little anxious before performing but it’s always so much fun.

Is it easy for you to talk about your feelings  and concerns?

I keep a lot of things to myself and I will only tell someone if i’m super close to them and trust them.

Are you a "best friend" or "group of friends" type person?

I like to have one or two people that I know I can trust but it’s always fun to have a big group.

Do you prefer being scheduled & structured or spontaneous?

At home I like to have a plan and structure but when I’m somewhere i’ve never been I like to go out and explore.
