Roan (8th Grade) Village DirectorReturners

What is your favorite Crestridge tradition?

I would have to say the Challenge system. While I was not a camper at Crestridge, I love the way these challenges grow every individual camper who steps into them. I love the lessons girls learn no matter how far they go in the challenges.

What is one movie you could watch over and over?

The Parent Trap. On repeat.

Describe your ideal sandwich.

My ideal sandwich is wheat bread with chicken breast and shredded cheese toasted, with lettuce, red onion, pickles, bell peppers, and a chipotle southwest sauce.

If your life was a movie, what would the title be?

Here We Go!

If you hosted a talk show, who would your first guest be?

Julie Andrews! I think that she is the most elegant and poised woman. I would love to know what is was like to play maria in the sound of music and the queen of Genovia in the princess diaries.

What are you most excited about for summer 2021?

I am most excited to be able to sit down with campers and staff and hear about their lives. I think our life stories are so important to share. We can learn from each other and grow together in Christ.
