What do you enjoy about cheer? I really love the dancing and stunting. I’m not the best when it comes to conditioning, but I love that my teammates cheer me on and encourage me. How did you first get into cheer? I started the summer going into fifth grade. My friend said that I should give it a try. YOUR LIBRARY, YOUR VOICE You are invited to take a five minute survey to help plan future library improvements. This is your opportunity to tell the County of Los Angeles Public Library and the City of Malibu how we’re doing, what you’d like more of, and where we should be headed. The survey closes April 20 For more information, visit or contact Elizabeth Shavelson at (310)-456-2489 ext. 254 What’s it been like having a new coach in Jess Murray this year? It’s been amazing. I like that she makes us work hard so we can be the best team that we can be. And that she believes in us. What are your hobbies outside of cheer? I love fashion and makeup. When I’m not cheering I’m usually drawing fashion illustrations and portraits. Where in the world would you most like to travel? New York! I’ve never been and I want to experience a cold winter with snow and New York fashion week. What is your favorite sport to cheer? Football, because the football moms are always so energetic and supportive. What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten? The Scooby Doo animator, Joe Sichta, once told me that it’s better to be reliable than to be well known. Who on the cheer squad has the best nickname? Carly [Horwitz]. We sometimes call her lobster Suzy Demeter/22nd Century Media because she forgot to put on sunscreen at the cheer camp and got really burnt. It just stuck. What is your favorite subject in school? Art, because I can be creative and express myself. If you could have one superpower what would it be and why? Invisibility, because I think it would be cool to see how people really act when I’m not around. Interview by Freelance Reporter Ryan Flynn. Classifieds Malibu surfside news | April 12, 2018 | 29
