8th Grade Spotlight on Mallory Eberz

Lile Bekaia
Mallory stands outside on a curb looking very pleased in the sun.

Do you have any hobbies or activities you enjoy?

My favorite activity would have to be spending time with family. Whether that means we are hiking, paddle boarding, camping, travelling, playing games or eating together. I also enjoy reading, babysitting, playing sports, hanging out with friends, dancing, listening to/playing music, learning and being involved in school.

Do you have a favorite sport? Do you play it too? Why do you like it?

I play a couple sports, but if I had to choose my favorite, it would be dance. I’ve done Scottish dancing since I was 3 years old and I’ve recently discovered my love for ballet too. Ever since I can remember dance has been such a big part of my life. I like it because I get to travel with my family all over the country while doing something I love. I’ve been to the US championships twice and plan to compete there again. The results never mattered to me, what matters was that my dance teacher (my grandmother, former World Champion) was happy. She taught me everything I know about dance and I wouldn’t be anywhere without her.

What’s your favorite movie (or show)?

Gilmore Girls

How do you think you’ll feel in the High School?

I’m both excited and nervous to go to the High School. I will be able to be more involved and start preparing for my future which I look forward to. Although, I’d have to say, with two older siblings that both attended Stroudsburg High School, the standards are high.

What’s your favorite quote?

“Success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.” -Michelle Obama

Which places would you like to travel to someday and why?

I would like to travel to every National Park. My family and I love to go on adventures and explore. My dad has been to many National Parks throughout his life and loves to take my family places.

What is your most fond memory?

My most fond memory is going to Oregon over the summer with my family. There I competed in the US championships and after my family and I went camping along the coast where we got to go to a National Park and explore many different places. It was very fun and something I will always remember.
