Daisy Flores, Frank Wagner Middle School

Always acting up: Daisy loves writing and acting. She is working on a play, "Treasure Island," in her performing arts class at Frank Wagner Middle School. She plays Jamie, a little boy who is always fighting with his sister. The performance is March 31 at school. "I like to express myself, and writing and acting are expressive. I like the idea of pretending to be somebody else," she said

Favorite actor: Robin Williams. She thinks he’s funny and enjoyed his performance in "Patch Adams." "He has a good way of expressing himself," she said.

Her own style: If acting doesn’t work out, she wants to be a clothing designer. "I started just drawing clothes and I liked the idea of making it up and having your own style," she said.

Always on the move: Daisy’s family moved around a lot in California before moving to Washington. She’s lived in Monroe for three years and she likes it. She plans to stay for a while. ("My mom promised we weren’t going to move anymore," she said.)

Big changes: Next year, she’s headed to Monroe Junior High School. "I’m going to miss this school a lot," she said of Frank Wagner Middle School. "It’s kind of scary, because there’s going to be more people there," she said.

Reality buff: Her favorite TV shows are "American Idol" and "Fear Factor." She’s a fan of Simon Cowell, Idol’s sharp-tongued Englishman judge who’s always quick with an insult. On "Fear Factor" she likes seeing what people will and won’t do to win. "I don’t think I’d do any of the eating things," she said of the show’s challenges that involve eating anything from insects to animal organs. "The worst one was when they were eating duck eggs — and they were alive."

So, what’s on the menu?: "I like pretzels a lot," Daisy said. "And I like shrimp."
