“Hi my name is Shirley Cole. I am 18 years old and have lived most of my life in Cape Coral Florida; Go Gators! I am now a freshman at Brigham Young University, currently undecided and exploring what is out there. I absolutely love singing, dancing, playing instruments, going to the beach (well not here) playing volleyball, eating, and sleeping. I am the oldest of three children and have a Chihuahua named Nacho who is basically my child. A fun fact about me is that I am Mexican American and was born in Mexico City.” - Shirley Cole
