The Girl Behind the Smile:

My name is Danielle Alexandra Roberts (Dani), and I'm almost 15 years old. I'm a freshman at Stoneybrook High, in the itsy bitsy town of Stoneybrook, CT. I live with my mom and dad and my younger brother Greg, our cat Mr. Toes, and our brand new American Bulldog puppy, Cassidy.

What You See Is What You Get:

I'm only about 5'2" tall, and I have reddish-brown hair and brown eyes. I think I've got a very defined face, because I have some native American in my blood. That gave me really large eyes and defined cheek and jaw bones. I guess you could say I'm pretty, but if you did I'd probably punch you.

Sometimes I Get So Weird I Even Freak Myself Out:

I'm not the best student in the world, but I do okay. I take computers and Spanish for my electives, I'm in honors English, and I'm taking algebra 1 this year. But where I really excel and have fun is in gym! Sports are my passion. I currently play lacrosse, run track, and am part of an intramural tennis team. For fun, I ALSO play sports-ice skating, hockey, and occasionally horseback riding. Basketball, however, is out-as I can't reach that high!! I really like music, too. I'm just now learning to play guitar, so my big role model is Michelle Branch. I also like Alanis Morisette, Avril Lavigne, and I have a bit of a crush on Gavin DeGraw! I'm always up for some drama, as well, as I've been told I'm a good actress. Personally? I prefer the term PERFORMER!

When Life Gives You Lemons:

I guess I'm a bit of what you might call a tomboy. Rough and tumble, not afraid to pick a fight. But you see, some people would agree I have a reason for that. I've been fighting leukemia for years. When I was 9 years old, I went into remission, then it came back a little over a year ago. Over the last few years, I've been in and out of hospitals, cancer centers, The Ronald McDonald House... I've made friends and watched them die, knowing it could be me. Now I don't want to sound like a sob story, and I don't want to make excuses for my bad behavior (used to do that a LOT!) but I think that's a crucial part of my life for anyone getting to know me to know about.
