What were your favorite subjects in high school? Math and science 

Name a role model or models who have impacted your life? And describe how. My parents. A few years ago, they lost everything. They chose to work harder and keep going. They also then descided that everything they would do from there on out would be for god. I can say today that my parents now run a succesful bussiness built on the prinicpals found in the 10 commandments. They chose to seek the loard in hard times insead of running with the world.

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. "When my heart is overwhealmed lead me to the rock that is higher then I." Pslam 61:2. This verse has been my light in the darkness and has helped me when the darkness of life sets in. We cannot run from the dark, but we can chose to run with the lord when we encounter theses times. 

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? A piece of toast with bannas on it. 

What type of pregame music do you enjoy? Pump up songs, any kind. However they have to be postive and have a beat that I can get up and dance to. Thats how I get my "butterflies" out. 

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? In every choice you make, think of your long term goal. Ask yourself, is this choice that Im making moving me closer or away from my goal in life?
