1. My favorite sport is easily track because it takes guts. I’m more of an oval runner, where the distances are set in stone and the outcome of the race relies more on the caliber of the runner and the numbers they lay down.

2. The last song I listened to was Bring It On Home To Me by Sam Cooke. I love my 60’s music because it always puts me in a good but you wouldn’t believe the myriad of genres I listen to; Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, RHCP, Eagles, AC/DC, Tyler The Creator, NAV, Sublime, Frank Sinatra, and Journey are just a few. Wanna talk to me? Let’s talk music.

3. If I could professionally play an instrument it would be the piano hands down. I love playing the piano because it’s so versatile. I would be able to play some Bob Seger Old Time Rock and Roll, then turn around with Ave Maria and you wouldn’t know what hit you.

4. I’m not big into sports, so I could lie and say I support ISU but I really wouldn’t know what I’m talking about.

5. I do not have a favorite shape because all shapes are beautiful. I do not discriminate : )

6. If I could have a super power it would be super intelligence or mind reading. Super intelligence would get me a full ride to Harvard and a Forbes magazine cover for richest women with all my new inventions. Do you have any idea how many languages I could speak? As for the mind reading? Dear Mrs Miller, I apologize for staring at your forehead during the last test, I just had a hard time remembering that the 13th amendment was ratified in 1865 and abolished slavery in the United States.

7. I am absolutely clueless as if to what I want to be when I am older. If I could own my own business that would be lovely, but being a college professor sounds appealing as well.

8. My favorite moment of my high school career was when my own track coaches, Coach Irvin, Coach Schafer, and Coach Lang, congratulated me after my sophomore state track debut. There is something special about the recognition of those that I see on a daily basis in practice, that even the most prestigious interviewer can not give me.

9. Do I have a nickname? Yes. My nickname is actually so common that it is beginning to take over my actual name. “Nice race, Janet,” is said to me all too often. I genuinely believe that people think that is my birth given name. I blame you, Mr. Announcer at 7th grade science fair. 10. My favorite color is gold. To me, gold has such a positive connotation to it. It represents hard work, power, determination, and glory.

11. I cried when I watched Hacksaw Ridge this past summer. When private Dawson was beaten by a gang of his own men, he was asked to identify who had beaten him. When asked, he said “I sleep pretty hard,”. I also cried when he said “One more,” and continued to go back into battle to save more soldiers.

12. My favorite shoe brands include Adidas and Puma. I think their style is unique and exceptionally comfortable.

13. I was born in Norwalk, Ohio. We moved to Iowa when my father retired from the Air Force after serving as a Lieutenant Colonel.

14. My favorite place to visit is my brother’s house in Wisconsin. It is beyond beautiful up North and they have the best cheese, of course.

15. My teachers and coaches are the best thing about my high school. I love how even after some are no longer working in their positions, they still maintain a relationship with their past students because the genuinely care about their well being and want to see them succeed.

The feeling you get of pure confidence knowing that you and your team are for sure going to run on the blue oval, and that everything you worked on and did paid off, is INCREDIBLE. Another great feeling was winning 4 medals with my team at State Track my Junior Year. I love the atmosphere of all the sports I play so I am looking forward to one more year to put it all on the line.

12. What brand of shoes do you like to wear? -  This is a hard question because I like how Nike roshes, and Nike shoes in general look. You can customize them and make them look sweet, but I have to wear a very supportive shoes due to my surgeries on my feet so you will catch me wearing my Brooke’s a lot.

13. Where were you born? -  I was born in Lincoln Nebraska.

14. Favorite place to visit - I don’t have a favorite place to visit because I love to travel everywhere a lot! I go to Colorado every year to see my 103 year old Great Grandma, and I love the scenery out there. I also love the beach.

2. The last song was -   One Man Can Change the World, and yes I jammed out to it.

I rep the Blue and Orange when it comes to NFL, and no I didn’t jump on the Manning bandwagon! I support the USA Olympic teams, obviously, and I watch a lot of USA Volleyball.

7. What do you want to be when you grow up? -  I want to be a Chiropractor minoring in Nutrition, or a Microbiologist. I love the health field so much that it is so hard to pick exactly what I want to do. I also want to be successful, and jacked when I grow up!

8. What was the favorite moment of your high school career? - My favorite moment in high school so far would have to be my team, and I winning the sprint medley at districts my Sophomore year. The feeling you get of pure confidence knowing that you and your team are for sure going to run on the blue oval, and that everything you worked on and did paid off, is INCREDIBLE. Another great feeling was winning 4 medals with my team at State Track my Junior Year. I love the atmosphere of all the sports I play so I am looking forward to one more year to put it all on the line.

9. Do you have a nickname? -  If not what is your middle name? I simply do not have “a” nickname, I have multiple. Mac, Big Mac, Mac*daddy, Macadoodle, Mac & Cheese, Mac Attack, and we are gonna leave it at that.

12. What brand of shoes do you like to wear? -  This is a hard question because I like how Nike roshes, and Nike shoes in general look. You can customize them and make them look sweet, but I have to wear a very supportive shoes due to my surgeries on my feet so you will catch me wearing my Brooke’s a lot.

13. Where were you born? -  I was born in Lincoln Nebraska.

14. Favorite place to visit - I don’t have a favorite place to visit because I love to travel everywhere a lot! I go to Colorado every year to see my 103 year old Great Grandma, and I love the scenery out there. I also love the beach.
