"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." - Pope John XXIII

Interesting personal fact

If you mix up the letters in my first name you can spell 'orange', which is my favorite color. Also, I can't whistle, but I'm working on it!

"We do what we have to do in order to do what we want to do." - From the Great Debaters

Interesting personal fact

I like to think that I can beat box but my little brother says I can't. At some point in my life I want to try doing stand up comedy. When I grow up, I want to own a miniature giraffe, but I don't think those exist, so I'll keep dreaming.

Interesting personal fact

I love the smell of horses, I am the eldest of 5 children, in reality I have never actually grown up, I've had braces for about a year and therefore must say no when someone offers me chewing gum, I don't like being alone at home and if I am I turn up the music, I secretly perfect my chipmunk voice to the end of Michael Jackson's P.Y.T., and I have a great interest in learning about other cultures and listening to their music.

Interesting personal fact

For my last home Cross Country meet of my senior year in High School, I was about 200 meters behind a girl whom I wanted to reach. The finish line was very close when I decided to take the decision of ignoring the burning sensation in my legs and increase my speed in order to reach that girl. It almost seemed impossible because of the distance I had to cover in such a little amount of time but as I began speeding up I became confused. I was getting closer to her! About 10 inches behind the finish line, I passed her and ran across the finish line. I was very proud of myself and joyful that my parents were on the bleachers supporting me.
