She loves listening to music, french fries and anything that’s free. She loves her dog and cat, Nick and Stanley, more than anything. She hates overpriced clothing and being cold. In her free time, she likes going on walks with her dog, reading and playing soccer in her yard with her brother. She doesn’t like waking up early, but she does like school and hanging out with her two best friends.
