Junior Breawna Macool answers five questions about herself.

Q. What was your favorite cartoon while growing up?

A. “My favorite cartoon was Invader Zim because there was a cute little robot that would say ‘tacos’ all throughout the show. There was also an alien that was trying to take over the Earth the whole time. I guess I was just evil back then. (Insert evil laugh here).”

Q. Did you ever want to be a Disney Princess when you were younger? If so, which one and why?

A. “No. I did not want to be a Disney Princess because I didn’t want to be a Damsel in Distress. I wanted to be on the television to make people laugh, not be locked in a castle waiting for ‘Prince Charming’ to come rescue me.”

Q. What were your favorite games to play when you were younger and why?

A. “Monopoly, because I wanted to own everything and have people pay me! I wanted to be BOSS. Also, Clue because everything is a mystery and you don’t know what can happen. It’s not like being a regular kid making mud pies.”

Q. Did you play with Barbies/Bratz while growing up?  

A.  “I played with Barbies, the classic ones of course. My favorite one was Rapunzel, because my sister had the doll first, but then I got it. Being a kid, I liked to destroy things, like my mother’s things. Then one day, [my mother] got back at me and tore Rapunzel’s head off. I could never forget my favorite doll. R.I.P. Rapunzel.”

Q. What were you most afraid of when you were younger, and what did you do to resolve it?

A. “I was most afraid of the dark, because you can’t see what is there. Movies don’t help at all, especially the not The Grudge. The only thing I could think of to help myself was to listen to the soundtrack of Mary Poppins before I went to bed. Still to this day, before I go to bed, I listen to my Mary Poppins: Spoonful of Sugar.”
