What would people be surprised to know about you?  I ranked 3rd in the United States on trampoline when I was 8 and 9 years old and fell among the top (8) in the U.S. in power tumbling when I was 9 years old. 
Most Embarrassing Moment: When I was 4 years old, I played soccer one year. I ran across 3 other games and scored in their goal. I didn't understand that the closest goal was the one to get the ball in for my team.  I never usually got the ball, so when I did I never looked up until I got the ball in the goal.
What do you hope to convey to your audience?  That I am spunky and full of energy and like to have a lot of fun!
What are your favorite songs off your album? "We Got the Beat" and "Just Like You"

Fave TV shows/movies: Smallville and House are my favorite TV shows. My whole family watches them together. My favorite movie is Shark Tales. It’s so cute!
What would people be surprised to know about you?
When I come home I have a really normal life. I am not one of those girls who has to have the latest styles and stuff like that. I love Target and Kohl’s sales racks!
Most Embarrassing Moment: I was filling in for a play at my church and I completely forgot the lyrics during the solo. I couldn't remember them at all!
You all auditioned to be in this group—talk about the first time you met:
I had known Marissa for a little while. We had been to auditions before and met there (I thought she was just the cutest little girl ever! She always wore the cutest outfits.) When we went to the callbacks, Marissa and I sat together and gave each other our e-mails and cell numbers. But I didn't really talk to Cammie, so when we met Cammie, I was nervous! Maybe she wouldn't like me! Or she would baby us because we were younger. I was just flipping myself out. When we finally got to meet her I loved her! She was so sweet and funny!

What sort of issues do you think are the most important ones facing teen girls today? Feeling less than perfect. Advertising today, and people in general think bringing people down will get them somewhere.
