Personal Claim to Fame: My trip to Tanzania. I taught English to a class of 83 third graders and rebuilt and restored classrooms. I also hiked the base of Mount Kilimanjaro.

3 Words to Describe You: Outgoing, driven and versatile.
If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? A photo of my family because they’re my rock! A camera because I love taking pictures to document memories and for Instagram! An iPod because a girl’s gotta jam out!
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Natalie Tenerelli because she was a young, female player, Jenna Morasca and Parvati Shallow because of their ability to strategically combine sex appeal and intelligence, and Andrea Boehlke because she is a wholesome farm girl with big dreams.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to win the million dollars and also pay off my college tuition! I want to prove to everyone who ever doubted me that I am strong, strategic and intelligent, not just some Barbie princess, dumb blonde.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I would be a huge asset on camp. I have done Habitat for Humanity so I know how to build shelter. I have killed cows in Africa, worked on a farm, and know how to make fire. I’m also quick, excellent at puzzles, and have strong social skills from job experience and being a college student.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I have amazing social skills, because I’m majoring in PR, so I’m studying strategic ways to persuade and manipulate people. I have strong instincts and I am very athletic. I’ve always been competitive and I am a hard working, smart girl.
