Annie Strom aspires to be a great storyteller, just like Ed Bloom, the main character of her favorite movie, “Big Fish.’’
Like Bloom, she cares about helping people. Strom volunteers at an equestrian therapy program with her best friend.
Strom is free spirited and plans on sky diving when she graduates high school. In her hometown of Lake Forest, Ill., 17 year-old Strom enjoys jumping off piers with her friends into 50-degree water, hula hooping, interior decorating and rocking out to Blake Shelton.
She is not sure what she wants to major in, but she does plan on attending the University of Oklahoma. Strom mentioned that her college of choice should have four things: be in the South, great football, nice weather conditions and sororities.
She claims Oklahoma’s hot weather will give her a break from her “ice-cube of a town.” Maybe one day Strom will work at a circus, make a stop in Pleasantville or even catch that ONE Big Fish like Bloom.
