Jayel’s Bio

Your major: General Studies with an emphasis in Communications.

Your hometown: I moved around a LOT as a child ??? I could pick Payson, Utah, I guess.

Where do you live now? Taylorsville, Utah

What are you passionate about? I’m passionate about people. I believe that every person I meet has story that I could write an entire book about.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? I like taking a variety of communications classes: creative writing, journalism, theater, speech, radio, etc.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? Sandra Bullock

Where do you see yourself in five years? I’ve already retired from my dream job as a stay-at-home mom. Anything else I do is a bonus.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? My superpower would be flying. The closest I can get to that is going running, riding my motorcycle, and climbing to a mountain peak ??? and those things are pretty awesome.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: People are usually surprised when they find out I’m old enough to be a grandma ??? and that I ride a motorcycle.

Jayel’s Favorites

Favorite musicians and/or artists: Beatles, Elvis, and Beach Boys. They are even older than I am, but I still love them.

Favorite TV shows and/or movies: My favorite movie is The Lion King ??? gotta love that “Remember who you are” scene.

Favorite sports or sports teams: I’d rather play sports than watch: volleyball, track, tennis, basketball, baseball, rock climbing. But if I must watch, I enjoy a good Jazz game.

Favorite food: Chocolate. Chocolate is pretty much the answer to any question.

What’s your favorite place to eat? Texas Roadhouse. Love those fall-off-the-bone ribs!

What was your favorite cereal as a kid? Lucky Charms. There weren’t a lot of options back then.
