I love my school, but I almost went to: Nowhere else! I always knew that I was going to be an OSU Buckeye.

My best physical feature is:
Probably my curly hair. It's naturally curly, and people sometimes describe me as the "curly-haired" cheerleader.

If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be:
The Wizard of Oz. I was Dorothy for Halloween once and I loved my ruby slippers!

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of:
Everything! The OSU marching band (TBDBITL), Ben Folds, Jack Johnson, The Fratellis, Guster, and The Beatles are always good.

My worst habit is:
Taking naps.

My gameday superstitions are:
I have to have a candy buckeye before kick-off!

I'd love to trade places for a day with:
OSU President Gordon Gee.

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is:
Anything artistic. My drawing skills don't go beyond stick figures.

These three things top my bucket list:
(1) Travel across Europe, Central and South America; (2) take a hot-air balloon ride; and (3) run a marathon

I'd want my last meal to be:
My mom's cheesy potatoes and Graeter's black raspberry chip ice cream. Not too healthy, but very delicious!

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is:
When we ran our football team onto the field last year at the beginning of the game against Illinois. I was on the end of the line of cheerleaders and we ended up having a "crack-the-whip" effect. I couldn't keep up with the guy who was holding my hand and my feet just went out from under me. I was dragged across the field in front of over 100,000 fans, and I had the turf burn to prove it! The worst part is that my mom got a picture of it, so I'll never be able to forget my embarrassing moment.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are:
Sunscreen, a helicopter to fly off the island and a manual on how to fly a helicopter.

My favorite sport and professional sports teams are:
My favorite sports are football and cheerleading, but I don't have a favorite pro team.

My one guilty pleasure is:
Chocolate! I would eat it everyday if I could.

My celebrity crush is:
Jake Gyllenhaal.

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are:
OSU President Gordon Gee, Coach Jim Tressel, Oprah, Stephen Colbert and my mom, Kathy.

My friends would be surprised to know that I:
Know how to sew. I was in 4-H for years and I always took sewing projects.

The next risk I want to take is:
Graduating and entering the corporate world!

The reality show I'd do best on is:
Dancing with the Stars. I have some rhythm and I love the outfits.

The worst date I've ever been on was:
When one of my high-school boyfriends took me out for Valentine's Day. He flirted with the waitress the whole time!
