I love my school, but I almost went to:
A couple different schools in California. I was highly considering going to University of Cal Santa Barbara until the time came and I couldn't go that far away from home. Fortunately I chose Miami of Ohio. I love it!

My best physical feature is:
My smile.

If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be:
The Notebook.

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of:
"Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis and Jordan Sparks' "One Step at a Time." They are both great songs to work out and dance to.

My worst habit is:
Over-analyzing things in general.

My gameday superstitions are:
Checking everything in my bag twice before I leave to make sure I am not forgetting anything. Also, checking my earrings to make sure they are still in.

I'd love to trade places for a day with:
Heidi Klum

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is:
Singing! I am the world's worst singer -- I can't even listen to myself sing in the shower.

These three things top my bucket list:
To travel throughout Europe, get married and make a difference in someone's life.

I'd want my last meal to be:
Any type of Thai or Chinese food.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is:
So far, my college career hasn't had an embarrassing moment that really stands out to me, so I guess I'm pretty lucky.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are:
Water, my cell phone to call for help and a friend to keep me company.

My favorite sport and professional sports teams are:
Cheerleading! I also love dancing (ballet is my favorite), but I am not really a die-hard fan of any professional sports team.

My one guilty pleasure is:
Watching The Hills every Monday night!

My celebrity crush is:
David Beckham

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are:
My grandmother who passed away when I was 12, Mother Teresa, Tom Hanks, Walt Disney and Coco Chanel.

My friends would be surprised to know that:
My name is actually spelled "Jacqueline" on my birth certificate.

The next risk I want to take is:
Well, I am actually not a big risk taker, but I would have to say moving out on my own after college.

The reality show I'd do best on is:
So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars -- but I'm not exactly a star.

The worst date I've ever been on was:
I haven't really had one yet, "knock on wood!"
