School Story:

Most of you will probably not remember me because I was one of those extremely shy, quiet, kids that was largely ignored by most everyone.

What Elementary School (s) did you attend?

To many to remember. 5th and 6th grade in Eureka Elementary

What Junior High (s) did you attend?

Allison Jr. High

Least favorite memory?

The bullying. I was a shy, curly haired quiet girl, Who dressed differently because of religious standards.

What did you want to do or think you were going to do when you finished high school?

I thought I'd be a music teacher, turns out music is better a hobby than a profession for me.

Biggest thing you would do differently if you went back to your time at West High?

Speak up for myself more and care less about how others perceive me.

Where have you lived?

Kansas, Illinois, Arizona, Illinois, Arizona

If you don't live in the Wichita area, what do you miss the most? How often do you get back? What are your favorite things to do?

I miss being close to my family (aunt, cousins) I"ve been back to Wichita only once and it has changed so much I couldn't find my way around.

Famous or interesting people you have met:

I haven't met any famous people but I have met many interesting people along the way.
