I am Paige Tobin. Currently, I am Miss Spokane’s Teen 2023 and a competitive dancer at Studio INC Dance Academy. Sports and the arts are very import in my life. I believe every child should have the opportunity to participate in these extracurricular activities. Sports provide critical life skills like teamwork and communication. While the arts provide children to release their creativity and develop their personality. I have been given the opportunity to participate in competitive dance which has taught me teamwork but also allows me to show my creativity through movement. I also enjoy baking! My favorite thing to make are chocolate chip cookies! I considered myself a master at the art of chocolate chip cookies! My favorite subject in school is science. I have worked on projects such as searching for new antibiotics and currently I am working to find Chytrid, a fungus effecting frogs and salamanders across the world, in the Pacific Northwest.
