December 16, 2013

Throughout the 13-14 season, the Bobcats are highlighting one Lady Cat each week as a Social Media Sweetheart. During the week, fans will get an inside look into the lives of these hard working ladies as they go about their daily lives at their offices, classrooms, Lady Cats practices, family outings and Bobcats games.

Hometown: Locust, NC
Occupation: Student
Hobbies: Dance, hanging out with my family, friends, and boyfriend, working out, and I love to do anything outdoors.

What is your favorite charity and why?
My favorite charity would have to be Operation Christmas Child because the holidays are my favorite time of the year and I have been so incredibly blessed growing up! I love being able to help make other kids' Christmas and holiday time just as great.

Dream Job?
Victoria Secret Model… I watch the fashion show every year!!

Dream vacation destination?
I would love to take a trip to Italy, it is actually on my bucket list of things I want to do in life!

How did you feel during your first Lady Cats performance as a rookie?
I was so nervous all I could think about is how bad I did not want to mess up or make a silly face on the jumbotron!

Why did you want to try out for the Lady Cats?
I have danced and cheered my whole life and it has always been a dream of mine to be a professional dancer, so I figured I would go after my dream this year and it has been by far one of the best decisions I have ever made!

Did you play any sports growing up?
Besides dancing and cheering I tried softball for a couple of years when I was little; however, I was not very good at it. I would always pick flowers in the outfield or dance around and get in trouble for not paying attention. I think my parents knew at that point that dance was the sport for me!

What is your biggest fear?
I am absolutely terrified of haunted houses. Every time I go in one I end up having my head buried in someone's back so I don't have to see any of it, or I run through the whole thing just to get out of it. I stray far away from Scarowinds!

What is one of your favorite quotes you live by?
My favorite quote would have to be the verse 1 Thessalonians 5:16 "Be joyful always.."; I am always trying to be a positive and happy person so I really take this verse to heart :)

Favorite time of the year?
My favorite time of the year is fall. Outside looks so beautiful when the leaves change colors and with all the holidays going on its a great time of the year that I get to spend with family and friends.

Why would you encourage someone to try out for the Lady Cats?
I would encourage someone to try out for the Lady Cats because it has been the best decision I have ever made. You get to dance in front of huge crowds of people and do charity events all through out the city along with appearances representing the Bobcats. You gain new best friends and sisters that are always there for you whenever you need them, and the fans are absolutely amazing and so sweet. You gain so much confidence and you work for an awesome organization. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity I wish every girl could experience!
