Get to know me
Colleen Kagan

  • Who is she? Colleen, 17, of Rockford is a senior at Boylan Catholic High School. She is a part of the National Honor Society, Key Club and the 4-H Club, and serves as president of In Youth We Trust, a youth philanthropy organization that is associated with the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. She is the daughter of Michael and Janet Kagan.

  • What's next? In Youth We Trust is working on selecting bands for the "Youth Charity Jam" in April. Proceeds go to the Community Foundation's College Scholarship Fund.

  • What are your plans for college? I was accepted to the three colleges I applied to, but I'm still undecided. I'm really excited. I want major in psychology and be pre-med.

  • Ideal way to spend a weekend in Rockford: Supporting my school by going to the various sporting events and hanging out with my friends. I also like to go see a movie or go to Barnes & Noble.

  • Last good book you read: "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey.

  • Favorite movie: "Napoleon Dynamite."

  • What are you watching on TV? "The O.C." and "Arrested Development."

  • Five items you can't live without: My computer, car, cell phone, my agenda or daily planner, e-mail/Internet.

  • What is a memory that always makes you laugh? This is really embarrassing. In seventh grade, I was in a play at school and the role required me to sing. I have a terrible singing voice; it's so bad that they played a tape and I had to lip sync the song. People knew I was lip syncing, but it was probably better than them actually having to hear me.

  • What is the first thing you do after you come home from school? I check my e-mail and the postal mail.

  • What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? When I was little I really wanted to be a chef.

  • If they made a movie of your life, who would play you? The actress I would love to play me, because she is gorgeous, is Catherine Zeta-Jones, but that's a little unlikely. They would probably have to cast an unknown actress to play me, because I don't fit the Hollywood mold right now. It would probably be a comedian because I always like funny movies. I could never make a serious movie about my life. It would have to be a comedy.

  • Something you've always wanted to do: I've always wanted to travel through Europe.

  • Favorite saying: There are so many. I quote from everything. Lately, I've been quoting from "Anchorman." If there is a difficult question in class I will say, "Knights of Columbus," or "By the Beard of Zeus."
