  • Tell us a little about yourself.

Unfortunately, I’m an orphan. I don’t know anything about my family—and I really wish I did!  I’m also a student at the University of Colorado where I have an awesome boyfriend, Josh and my best friend Dakota.

  • Tell us why you’re embarking on this adventure?

My adventure all started when I went with Josh on a spring break road trip to Padre Island, TX. I actually found …an engagement ring when I was packing the car! But it really went downhill from there when we ran into a tornado and then I got stranded by the side of the road. So, as for the ‘why’ I basically had to, I had to figure out what was going on so I could save myself and my friends.

  • Do you have a moral code? If so what might it be

I definitely have a moral code. Since I don’t have a family, my friends are precious to me. I would do anything, and I do mean anything, to keep them safe.

  • Would you kill for those you love?


  • Would you die for those you love?


  • What is your world like? How does it differ to mine?
  • Who is your greatest friend?

My greatest friend is Dakota, she’s my sister from another mister. We met in the foster care system and I’d do anything for her.

  • Who is your greatest enemy
  • Is your world populated by different races? How do they get along?
  • How do you define ‘heroism?’

Heroism is showing up and standing up to difficulty even when you don’t understand what’s going on or you’re not sure you can succeed.

  • Tell us about your family?

I wish I knew.

  • What is your greatest skill/asset

I keep on going no matter what! Is that stubbornness? I guess it is.

I’m starting to get an inkling, however, that I might have a special power which might turn out to be my greatest skill/asset.

  • What is your greatest weakness (we won’t tell).

I am much more insecure than I seem. I’m also very lonely. I get envious of other people who have families.

  • Within your civilisation what do you think is the most important discovery/invention?
  • How would you describe yourself?

I would describe myself to others as fiercely loyal and tough. With no family I’ve had to be tough and depend on myself.

  • How do you think others see you?

I think others see me as a regular woman, but they’re wrong. Josh says I’m pretty…

  • Do you believe in god(s)?
  • Within your culture what is the political structure.
  • Do you believe you will be successful in your quest
  • What is your greatest fear?
  • What do you think of your author/creator?
  • If you could have three wishes what would they be?
  • Do you believe in magic?
  • Tell us about your greatest achievement
