“Hello! My name is Cassie Gonzalez. I am from Turner, Oregon and I am number 4 of 10 children. I am a senior majoring in Elementary Education. I absolutely love musical theater. My favorite types of movies to watch would have to be action and suspense. I own almost every Super Hero movie that involves the Avengers. I get sunburn on my eyes and I have freckles on my eyeballs. I can do a weird twitch with my upper lip making me look like a rabbit or a squirrel (whichever one you think looks closer).” -Cassie Gonzalez
