Jo is one of those types of people who either stay inside and read all day, or is outside playing every sport known to man. Her favourite author is Tamora Pierce, and wishes she could be like her characters. The sport she is currently involved in is Quidditch, and she couldn’t ask for a better team and the friends that she’s made on it. She hopes to be an English teacher someday, and she loves to do editing-type work often.
