SCW: Name, age, hometown?
Krista Marie, 20, Santa Cruz Mountains
Krista Marie: Music is my life! You will find me at music shows, festivals and concerts of all types of genres. Over the last few years I have found my passion in dancing, it’s my place of peace where I fully let go to feel every beat to the music! To preform and share that passion with everyone is truly my dream and it’s a great work out too! I am always thanking my mom for passing down the dancing genes to me!
SCW: Very cool, Well going to all those fun festivals you must have caught the travel bug, where has it taken you so far and where do you plan to go?
Krista Marie: Yes! I definitely have a severe case of the travel bug! Being constantly surrounded by new people and places puts a smile on my face. I have mostly been around parts of California but at the moment I’m in Colorado for new years show. I will be going out of the country for my first time this February and going to Envision festival in Costa Rica….but that’s only the beginning. I plan to travel the World! I hope I can take my passion of music, dance, and modeling with me!
SCW: Well, we are sure that world will be awaiting you with open arms! Now we get to the down to the big question…. Are you a cat or a dog person?
Krista Marie: That’s a tough one because I am known by the nickname Krista Cat or Krista Tigerlily to many people. So I would say I’m a cat at heart but I do love dogs. They’re just so playful and cuddly. You know dogs will always give that unconditional love no matter what!
Krista Marie: Well along with my travels I really want to help people around the world get clean water and build schools. All the basic human rights we take for granted everyday. I also want to bring music, dancing, hula hooping and joy to people around the world. So I guess I would start off buying plane and train tickets to get me to these places and then buy supplies to make it all happen.
SCW: Growing up in Santa Cruz we are all ocean lovers! How do you enjoy the ocean?
Krista Marie: Well the water is a little cold for me so usually you can catch me on some random cliff soaking up the sun and hula hooping. Or you will find me playing in the sand, but I never really go past my legs in the water unless I’m feeling very daring. (laughs)
SCW: It sounds like someone needs a wetsuit for her birthday! Who is your role model, and why?
Krista Marie: Yeah or a nice trip to the tropics (laughing). My role models change from my family to my spirit sisters to the people that effect and inspire me to be the best I can be!
SCW: If you were an animal or plant what kind of would you be?
Krista Marie: I would be a tiger because they’re so fierce, or a bird so I could just fly in the wind. As for a plant I would be a lotus flower because they are some of the most beautiful and they grow out of muddy waters.
SCW: This is a hard one: If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Krista Marie: Angelina Jolie because she is a Gemini sun sign and Aries moon sign just like me! And for the male role for a love of my life Emilie Hirsch please! (laughing)
SCW: If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
Krista Marie: I would want to be able to grant people wishes, but just like the genie in the lamp there would be rules!!!
SCW: Nice one! We like that! Well we are about out of time, do you have any parting words of wisdom or shout outs before we go?
Krista Marie: No matter what, always chase after your dreams and what makes you happy! Never doubt what you deserve and always be true to yourself because there is no use in trying to be anyone else!
