I love my school, but I almost went to: Because my Dad is an alumni, I grew up an Illini fan and I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!

My best physical feature is: My smile :)

If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be: How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: John Mayer (I go to all his concerts!), Dave Matthews, Matt White Band & techno!

My worst habit is: Over thinking

My gameday superstitions are: Making sure my tattoo is on the right cheek!

I'd love to trade places for a day with: Kate Hudson

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Having the ability to sing (my Mom tells me to not even sing in the shower)!

These three things top my bucket list: Run in a marathon, live on the beach, and travel to as many places as possible, including space!

I'd want my last meal to be: My Mom's chili no-bean dip (light on the cream cheese) with Tostados chips.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: This is my first season on the squad and luckily I haven't been embarrassed yet!

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My roommates (Natalie and Jacqueline), and an iPod, so we could have dance parties!

My favorite sport and professional sports teams are: Baseball (CHICAGO WHITE SOX -- even though I'm from the North side of Chicago!) and College Football (The Fighting Illini!)

My one guilty pleasure is: Banana ice cream with chocolate chips from Coldstone.

My celebrity crush is: Matthew McConaughey

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Mr. Rogers, Jimmy Buffett, My Grandpas, John Mayer, Jay Leno

My friends would be surprised to know that I: Fear failure because I always have a positive attitude, a smile on my face, and never want to be a disappointment.

The next risk I want to take is: To go skydiving with my sister.

The reality show I'd do best on is: I'm not really into reality shows, but I would dominate on The Price Is Right!

The worst date I've ever been on was: My boyfriend has yet to disappoint me!
