Essay Questions

What is your most memorable childhood experience?My most memorable childhood experience was getting my first dog. My mother and sister were away and my dad and I were home alone. We decided to go to the pound and saw a purebred, 9 month old Siberian Husky and knew he was the perfect dog for us. He was my best friend for the next 16 years, but I vividly remember that day and going home and playing with him all night.
What immediate family member do you closely identify with and why?I identify most with my sister. We have very similar personalities and are often mistaken for twins. We have always been there for each other through everything.
What character traits do you admire in an individual?I admire honesty the most in people. I do not care how hard the truth is to hear or say, as long as it is said I will always move past it. Lying to me is the fastest way to lose all respect from me.
What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?The funniest thing to ever happen to me was when I was working on my Jeep. I could not find out why it was not getting any power for 3 hours. Finally I came across the smallest wire possible, and upon replacing it everything worked perfect. All I could do was laugh. It also taught me that all the small things in life matter.
If time and money were not an issue, where would you travel and why?I would travel to either Hawaii or Japan. Hawaii because I love beaches and they have amazing surfing as well as scuba diving that I would absolutely love to experience. I have grown very interested in Japanese culture in the last 2 years and really would love to visit all of the historic sites as well as all of the major cities in their glory.
When and if you ever have children, what would you like to pass on to them?I would love to pass on my guitars because they mean so much to me and got me interested in music. I'd also want them to have my football memorabilia because it has great meaning to me, especially my game ball from Ben Roethlisberger.
