Hi! My name is Alexandra Kolz, but I prefer to be called Allie. Growing up, I moved around a lot, having lived in five houses and three different states. This means that I went to five different schools before high school. I grew up with a typical mom, dad and a little sister. My Dad is the provider for the house while my mom is the stay home mom. My Dad owns his own company that is an executive business process outsourcer. My sister is only 11 months younger than me. In my life I have had three dogs. One who I grew up with since birth and it was a very sad passing away. Her name was Trista and she was a Springer Spaniel. Now I have two dogs; the older dog is named Bailey, a Bichon Poo, and the younger is Bucky, a Golden Doodle. I also had a cat named Tasha and many more frogs, turtles, and fish that I cannot name. As one might see I really like animals. Throughout my childhood, I participated in a variety of sports with my sister. She was always the more graceful child. I participated in jazz, tap, gymnastics, Irish dance, volleyball, track, ballet, t-ball, cheerleading, and swimming. Out of all the sports I participated in, I picked swimming to pursue. Swimming is my home away from home. It is the only thing constant in my life moving from school to school. The classes in each school kept changing while the strokes done in the pool were always the same. I went to Lakes Community High School in Lake Villa, Illinois. My senior class had 356 graduates. Lake Villa is a primarily white community, and therefore lacked diversity. However, the school still embodied tolerance and acceptance. During my tenure I was active in student government for all four years. Starting as a member, I worked up to Secretary and then finally senior year, to Vice President. I was also a member of the National Honor Society. Both student council and National Honor Society gave me the opportunity to get involved in helping the community, which I like to do. I also unexpectedly won homecoming princess my junior. However, my favorite part of high school was Preschool I and II. In preschool I I had the opportunity to work one on one with a student named Noah. He taught me a lot and helped me get out of my shell, while also trying to get him out of his shell. I loved the class so much that I decided that I had to do Preschool II my junior year. In preschool II I got to teach math, science and language multiple times to different groups varying in age as the classes went on. It was unlike Preschool I in which I taught art and group lessons. During the final portion of my class, I shadowed teachers at a local middle school and I loved the children in the special education department. It was always my favorite to go and see them. Through my experience in these classes I learned that I really want to be a teacher, which led me here to Ball State. I am attending Ball State because of the renowned teacher program, but I also really loved the campus and professors at Ball State. I am a student athlete on the Women’s Swimming and Diving Team. I am dual majoring in elementary and special education.
