2: Symbols | I've been dancing at Encore Dance Academy for the past 3 years. My teammates and I used to dance at a different studio, but we all switched due to conflicts with the owner. I have been in dance from age 3 until present. It has been my passion ever since, and I want to continue to dance in college. | Religion is important to my family and I. We are of the Christian Catholic faith, and we try to go to church every Sunday. | I have been working at Manderfield's since last October, and I love my job. Although I know I won't continue working there while I'm at a University, I still make sure I keep a positive lasting impression on my coworkers and the customers. ___________________ | Coach is my favorite brand. I have Coach purses, shoes, headbands, purse bows, backpacks, wallets, and wristlets from that company, and I love how high quality they are. | I plan on attending either UW Eau Claire or St. Norbert College after my senior year. My mom went to UWEC and although I've toured others, I fell in love with these two colleges when I toured them.
3: I went to Paris during Spring Break of my sophomore year in high school, and I had tons of fun. I missed my family a TON, which at times got in the way of my experience while I was there. It was my first time traveling on a plane, my first time being in a different country, and my first time seeing homeless families. There were many firsts on my trip to Paris, and I still remember a lot of my experiences on the trip. I went with my Godmother and Godfather, because we had been planning this trip ever since I was 8. I do miss the beautiful city of Paris whenever I think about it, and before I went there, I wanted to move to Paris. But now that I have been there, I'd rather live here in the U.S., and travel back to Paris in the future. | My family is very important to me because I believe it is the one thing you are guaranteed to have with you your entire life. They have shaped me to be who I am today. My parents stress getting good grades so we will be successful in college, and in our future job. They also stress being on time and getting as few tardies and absences as possible so we will have a good attendance record. They do it to benefit us in the future, although the five of us may not recognize it always. I don't know what I would do without my family, or even if my parents got a divorce. I pray that nothing ever breaks us apart.
4: Values | Respect is the one thing I value the most because I feel that if you are respectful, then you are also kind, responsible, and honest. You do the right thing even when nobody is watching, and you don't intentionally do things to make someone uncomfortable, angry, or sad. | Another thing I value is smiling. I believe a smile can make any persons day better. A simple smile to someone you may not even know could change how they feel at that moment.
5: Norms | I go to school everyday at Kimberly High School | I usually work on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays | I have dance every Monday for 5 hours, I volunteer teach little kids dance every Wednesday for 3 hours, and every Thursday for one hour
6: Material | Coach, Buckle, Hollister, and American Eagle are all my favorite brands of clothing and accessories because I believe they are good quality, even though you need to pay more than average, I like to buy things that satisfy me, and that will last. | Some more material items that I love are my dance shoes. There are different types of dance shoes for every different type of dance.
7: Technology | I have an iPhone, iPod touch, and an HP laptop. These pieces of technology affect my life because they provide easy access to the internet and to music and entertainment. | These three brands of cars somewhat "define" me because my family has owned a Corvette and BMW, but we sold them because my mom didn't like riding in the Corvette (probably too fast for her) and the BMW had unfixable technology problems. We currently own two Acuras, two Toyotas, and a Ford car. It is nice to not have to worry about having a shortage of vehicles to take for my parents, brother and I to get to our hobbies or work.
