She also loves watching hockey, preferably the Penguins.
Courtany has loved her 3-d animation and English classes during high school. They have challenged her and given her so much satisfaction. High School is full of memories, some quite random. She remembers in her sophomore year a student kicking and kicking the vending machine because he didn’t get what he paid for. She said it's just a crazy thing that comes to her mind sometimes. Which leads to one of her favorite quotes, “You’ll shoot your eye out!” That quote will sometimes come to her mind when people are doing crazy things.
After graduation she plans on working, and taking a year off. However, she does want to go to Disneyland. After the year's end, she plans on going to MATC for digital media. We end with a final quote from the Fast and Furious just for Courtany, “I live my life a quarter mile at a time. “ -Dom Toretto
