All About Me

                   For those of you who don't know me, I'm Maddie.  I am in seventh grade and I am 12 years old.  I am a dancer on the New Egypt Warriors competitive dance team.  The league that I dance in is Pop Warner Football, Dance and Cheer.  On that team we have taken 1st place three times at Eastern Regionals, 1st place twice at Nationals in Disney World, Florida at the Wide World of Sports, and 2nd place once at Nationals. I have been dancing for 8 years and I have been on competition level now for 4 years.  Dancing is something I love and I wouldn't give it up for the world.

Cupcakes that I made
                     Some of my favorite things to learn about are different techniques on decorating different types of pastries, (such as cakes, cupcakes, cookies, etc.).  Another thing is I do a lot of gymnastics in dance so I like to learn how to do different types of gymnastics moves.  Lastly, I love to write so learning different types of writing is another.

                      A few of my hobbies include dancing (obviously), gymnastics, reading, and hanging out with my friends.   Some of the gymnastics skills that I am working on now are back walkover, side aerial, and front handspring.  A few of my favorite books are The Hunger Games Trilogy, Prom and Prejudice, From Willa With Love, and the Your's Truly, Lucy B. Parker series. 

                   My family consists of my mom, Yvette, my dad, Russell, my brother, Brandon, and of course me, Maddie.  I also have a Bichon Shi Tzu named Cloe.  My Nana and Dzia Dzia (grandparents on my mom's side) and my Grandpop (on my dad's side) are always very supportive in everything I do.  I am very lucky to have them.

                    One of the things I want to be when I grow up is a dance teacher/choreographer.  I want to do this because I love dance and about everything related.  I have also considered  being a teacher or pastry chef.  I think I get this from my Aunt Jeanne and cousin, Kristen because my aunt loves to bake and my cousin went to college to be a pastry chef.  Sometimes she comes over and we just bake together.

                 One thing that makes me happy is listening to One Direction!!! Their new song Live While Were Young, LWWY, just came out Thursday, September 20.  They are my favorite band.  Another thing that makes me happy is being around my friends.  They are always there for me, and will pick me up if I'm sad.

              Okay, so that was a little bit about me.  Keep reading this blog if you liked it!
