Here are 9 Fierce Facts about Stephanie and one line is completely fictional. Get involved by guessing which one of the 10 items listed below is the impostor. Put your comments below to test your sleuthing skills! The fictional statement about Stephanie will be posted next Tuesday when I feature the next CN Teammie. See below for the false fact about last week's featured teammie, Anna.
1. I have lived in seven different countries and traveled extensively all over the globe - but was not a military brat!
2. I love archery, throwing knives and opening beer bottles with a lighter. I also enjoy playing poker and have earned the moniker Summer Wildcard.
3. One of my favourite moments in life was in the Red Sea off the Sinai Peninsula. While snorkeling with my high school Oceanography class on a class trip there was a section of coral you had to swim over for hundreds of feet. Once my friend and I hit the wall, which was a drop off of maybe 60 feet - for as far as the eye could see was blue, blue ocean and hundreds of pink jellyfish. They were not dangerous and we swam amongst them.
4. I like to play with fire! One of my hobbies is performing as a fire dancer, vaudevillian and side-show artist. My favourite act was dreamed up by my friend Wil where I fire hula-hoop on top of him or Charlie, wearing heels and balancing on a double stack of a bed of nails which they are squished between...tricky!
5. When I lived in Australia our school had a program called Extreme Adventures! We traveled to Antarctica for a week to study penguins. My favourite penguin was Louie because he liked to play fetch and a loose version of soccer which was really passing the ball back and forth.
6. I learned to ride horses by the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza. I also learned how to fall off horses.
7. I have swum in the waters at the Costa del Sol in El Salvador, sunk my toes into a black volcanic sand beach and picked up fossilized sea shells by the dozens in the Rub al Khali in Saudi Arabia.
8. I broke my face once while skateboarding on concrete in winter. I landed the trick unexpectedly and slipped, my face hit the concrete first and the rest of me after. I could touch my cheekbone and feel pieces of it moving around, I had a black eye and my teeth were loose for a while.
9. I work for a Tibetan monastery and program tours for the monks to share and preserve their culture through art, music and dance.
10. My most precious treasure was my black and white kitty named Spaz. His favourite pastime was chewing bamboo (panda in disguise), he liked to wag his tail (he really was a dog), and when he passed away from cancer a few of my dearest friends built a viking bonfire sent away for him and hosted a party in the backyard.
