Jessica ’16 Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under senior


Favorite Candy: I can’t choose between Butterfinger, Kitkat, Crunch, and Twix I love them all.

Favorite Drink: Dragon fruit vitamin water and Green Tea is all I drink.

3 foods for a year – what would they be? Pizza, Chocolate chip cookies, and Buttered noodles

Favorite website? YouTube is my absolute favorite website

Dream Job? I have always wanted to be on Broadway ever since I was 3 years old because I love to perform, and my backup dream job is a kindergarten teacher because I love kids.

3 pet peeves: I hate when teachers don’t erase the board completely and their is a mark left on the board (I usually grab an eraser and erase it after class). When there is a long line for the girls bathroom (seriously it shouldn’t take that long for women to go to the bathroom). When my friends come behind me and tickle me or scare me because they know I will scream my head off (LOL).

3 Things I can’t live without? My amazing friends, My sweet family, and delicious food.

Unusual Talent or hobby I have: I’m in Color Guard (I dance with flags with the marching band, and I’m captain of Color Guard this year). I can sing, act and dance(Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Ballroom, Modern, Lyrical, Tumbling, Salsa, Contemporary)

Favorite place on Earth: Wherever I am with my friends and family it’s my favorite place on earth, but the most fun I’ve had with them is at Disneyworld.

Favorite song: My favorite are “A Whole New World” from Aladdin because we all have times where we need to get away and explore so we can be on our own or be with the people that we care for the most.

Fav class or teacher in HS. Why? Mr. Nesseth and Mr. Struyk because they have given me opportunities that not everyone will. Even though I’m not the best academic student and they tell me how important I am and how much they appreciate me and how great of a job I’m doing even though they don’t teach those subjects.

Person I most want to meet: Courtney Reed because she is playing “Princess Jasmine” on Broadway in “Aladdin” and she’s from Elgin and I just think that its amazing that someone from the same town as me can get one of my dream roles and would love to talk to her about her experiences so I can do the same thing someday.

Favorite Brand: Little Caesars has the best pizza for really cheap who wouldn’t like that

Something I always have in my Purse/Pocket: I always have chapstick no matter where I am or what I do it’s nice to have moisturized lips.

Favorite App on my phone: Instagram because I love saving memories and I have saved many memories on it, and trust me there are more memories to come on Instagram.

Something I wish I was better at: I wish I was better at school I have never been a great student and grades aren’t the most important thing in the world but I have always wanted straight A’s but I never have.

3 things no one knows about me: Honestly I don’t have anything that no one knows about me because I am an open book, if I am upset or just want to brag I tell my friends and family and they always listen.

My friends would describe me as: Creative, Weird, and at times sweet, and the reason is because they inspire me to be a creative weird and a sweet person.

When I grow up I want to be: I want to be with my friends and following my dreams and hopefully become an even better person when I get older.

What are your after graduation plans? (college & major, work etc.) I want to start at ECC and double major in Fine Arts and Elementary Education and hopefully get a job at the ECC’s day care center and audition for professional theater companies or even audition for Disneyworld or Disneyland (hopefully get Belle, or Jasmine)

And some of her favorite images!

Zwingelberg Family

Published by Jan under family


Can I just say I LOVE extended family! There is just something about the relationships – both old & new – that is so special. And this family is very special! I did the youngest sons senior pictures a few years ago, so to get to reconnect with him and meet his older sisters and their families was wonderful. But can I just spell out – 7 children under 3 years old!!! The energy and enthusiasism was off the charts! The session was held at the Zwingelbergs rural Elgin home in their gorgeous backyard. A chilly morning, but the kids were real troopers. Photograph overload ahead – so many cute pictures!


and a sweet sibling shot
