Sierra’s Bio

Your major: I’m going into Nursing

Your hometown: Magna, Utah

Where do you live now? West Jordan

What are you passionate about? There are so many things I’m passionate about… medicine, people, horror movies, outer space, dogs, there are WAY to many to list. I believe that to be passionate about something is to be alive.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? Comm 1560 and my ethics and moral philosophy classes are my favorite because they’re challenging and very interesting in my eyes.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? If I had to choose any actress to play in my life movie, it would have to be Anna Kendrick. I feel like she would portray my quickness very well, also we share the fact that we probably like Taco Bell way to much for our own good.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I mean hopefully out of school working in a hospital, surrounded by three dogs, and living by the beach. I mean that honestly sounds like the best plan. I also want to have a couple of things ticked off my life list! But lets face the facts, I’ll still probably be in school!

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? I know what super power I would’t have, that would be flying! If I had to choose one it would probably be time travel. You could just pop into the future check out what’s going on with your friends, family, and current events. It would also make writing history paper so much easier because you could just go back in time and check out what you’re suppose to be writing about!

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: One thing that people might be surprised to know is that I was an Irish Step-Dancer for years. I did competitive for a little bit. Yes, I had to wear a traditional dress and curly wig and I still love it.

Sierra’s Favorites

Favorite musicians and/or artists: My music taste changes as fast as I change clothes. Currently the bands I’m listening to are The Wrecks, Wallows, The Smiths, Alvvays and Sufjan Stevens. Just to name a few, I fell like you can tell a lot about a person by their music tastes. Mostly alternative rock or indie bands for me.

Favorite TV shows and/or movies: My favorite type of movie would have to be horror movies, I especially love Stephen King’s IT. When I was younger it terrified me and gave me a super bad fear of clowns but now that I’m older I finally realize how good it was. For TV shows, Riverdale is a guilty pleaser of mine… kinda like Taco Bell.

Favorite sports or sports teams: I’m not that into sports but if I had to choose a couple it would be track and field or swimming. Those are both some of my favorite things to do.

Favorite food: Hands down, pizza, it could be breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I don’t recommend that though! But also curry is another go to.

What’s your favorite place to eat? My favorite place to eat would be this little Italian place out in West Valley called Siragusa’s. My family and I always go for birthday dinners over there.

What was your favorite cereal as a kid? Lucky Charms all the way! It’s got the best of both worlds, over processed marshmallow things and weird cereal that is oddly addicting!
