In Her Own Words

DREAM DUET PARTNER
“Carrie Underwood.”

LUCKY CHARM
“My mom.”

PET PEEVE
“I do not let people sit on my bed after I make it. It drives me nuts.”

CD IN YOUR STEREO
“David Cook’s This Loud Morning.”

PHRASE YOU SAY OVER AND OVER
“I’m just saying.”

TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY
I’m Just Saying.”

SHORT- AND LONG-TERM CHALLENGES
“My short-term challenge is to get a driver’s license because I turned 17 years old in November. My long-term challenge would be to think before I speak.”

SOMETHING WE’D NEVER GUESS ABOUT YOU
“I’m a math whiz.”

MUSICAL HERO
“My musical hero would probably be Carrie Underwood because she started the same way I did and she came from a town with a population of 3,500 people and that is how many people live in my town. I have always looked up to her and I was able to meet her and she is just as nice in person. She is such a beautiful person and she’s beautiful on the inside and out. I want people to look at me the way I look at her.”
