Something in the world I'd like to change: I'd like for everyone to be more tolerable and respectful towards others beliefs and lifestyle and to become more accepting of those around them.

Favorite sports moment: Bowling my first 300 game. That was also the same day I broke the National record.

Best thing about your favorite sport: In bowling you are on the lanes by yourself, and the only one who is going to make it or break it is you. I like how the sport is very individualized. Don't get me wrong, I love being a part of a team. But if worst comes to worst, there is always a chance for an individual to move on in the competition.
