Alexa Anthony, 10, of Battle Creek, answers questions of importance about things in her daily life.

Anthony is going to Lakeview Middle School, heading into sixth grade. She is doing a photography and writing camp and is doing this camp because of her love for writing. After her thrilling days at camp she heads home to her three dogs, two older sisters, one older brother, one past exchange student and her mom and dad, and she really enjoys spending time with them.

Sadly, Anthony used to have a bird, but it died from being in a cold room.

Anthony’s favorite hobby is drawing.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” I ask Anthony.

“I want to do something to help the cause of rescuing animals,” Anthony states in a quick manner. “For college I want to go to Brigham Young University because that’s also where my sister went.”

Anthony likes her hair long because she can do hairstyles with it. Her BFFs are Lily D. and Vivian W. She really enjoyed English and language arts in her fifth grade year. When she has a play date or sleepover at Lily’s house they always play her favorite video game, Oops! Prank Party.

Anthony wakes up at about 9 or 10 a.m. Surprisingly, she also goes to sleep at 10 or 11 p.m., possibly later! What a long day.

Anthony wears her favorite colors a lot, and those are teal and blue. What magnificent colors!

Her parents on a scale from one to 10 are number four in strictness. Her favorite teacher so far is Mrs. Nimptz, her third grade teacher.

From interviewing Anthony, I have learned she is a funny, kind and fun girl.
