2: The breast cancer symbol resembles all my aunts that have been diagnosed with cancer in the last year. The cancer gene runs in my family and so far four out of the five people in my family that have gotten checked for the gene, have it. I am very close to my family so it's difficult thing to have to deal with, but I do my best to be strong and be there for all my family. | This picture represents my small family. I live with my mom, and step dad. Although we're a small family, we're very close and happy. I can't imagine my family any bigger or better than it is.
3: This picture represents how I am very calm and relaxed. I like to stay positive and know that everything will always work out for the best. I try not to be stressed and always know bad times will soon pass. | I am so very close to my little cousins. They are what inspire me to be the person that I am today and make sure I am always someone that they can look up to. Hearing that I'm my little cousin's role model makes me strive to be an even better person.
4: Religion has always been something very valued in my family. I grew up always going to church and making sure to say my prayers every night before bed. The importance of religion has been passed down from generation to generation in my family.When I have a family of my own I will make sue religion is something very important to my own kids as well. | Something that is very valued to my family and I is family time. We make sure to spend time with each other a little bit each night. My parents and I also make sure to see our extended family quite frequently because they are all very important to us.
5: Every year at Christmas me, my mom, and step dad Jeff open presents as soon as we wake up. We stay in our pajamas all day long and just spend the day with each other playing with all of our new gifts. | Every Sunday night me and my family have a nice home cooked meal together. Afterwards me and my mom spend the rest of the night in her bed watching a movie. I have done this tradition with my family for as long as I can remember.
6: This picture of the closet explains me because I am very big into fashion and shopping. I love shopping for new clothes and can spend hours a night picking out a cute outfit to wear. | I have redone my room so many times. I love to decorate and design things, especially actual houses. I enjoy picking out colors and decorations to go along with the room. I have been this way all of my life which I may have gotten from my mom since she is the same way.
7: This cell phone defines me because I am always talking. I also use my phone a lot for communication when I am not talking to people in person. I'm not sure I could go one minute without talking to somebody. | I am always on the run and never at one place for very long. A car represents how I am always somewhere and doing something. I never just sit there and relax because I find it pretty boring.
8: This picture was taken in Wisconsin Dells; Marissa and I are at a dance at our hotel. I absolutely love going on vacations with my family and my friends. I have some of my very best memories while vacationing at a variety of places. | Me and my friends love going to Kimberly football games. This picture was taken at the homecoming game. During football season we make sure to never miss a game. Games was a very big part of my weekends during high school. Although I did enjoy hanging out and talking with everybody more than watching the actual game.
9: My all time favorite "hobby" would be just hanging out with my good friends. No matter what we're doing we always manage to have a god time. I love my friends very much and would be very bored if I didn't hang out with them as much as I do. | Another very important part of my family is my dog, Raven. I have had her since I was nine and can't imagine life without her. She is my best friend and very close to my heart. Without Raven, my family would be very boring and empty.
