Aug 31 2006 / Thursday

krisegotm400_400 Kris, the current etnies Girl of the Month, has made a name for herself in softball, but skateboarding is one of her true loves. “It’s completely different from softball, and that’s what I like about it,” explains the Indiana native. The 18-year-old high school senior aspires to be a personal trainer or sports photographer; currently, she works at local pet kennel called Best Friends. We caught up with Kris to discuss how she got into skateboarding, what she likes about etnies Girl and some of her favorite things.etnies Girl: What are your interests?
Besides skating, I also like to play softball, mess around on the guitar, running, soccer, shopping and hanging out with friends. etnies Girl: What are your talents?
My biggest talent would definitely have to be softball. People tell me all the time how good I am at it, and how much they enjoy watching me play. That’s what keeps me going. etnies Girl: How did you get involved in skateboarding?
I first got involved in skating about five years ago, when I bought my first board. Then I met one of my good friends on my softball team, Jen, who also skated. I would go over to her house, and we would skate everyday. Ever since then, I’ve just kept going and getting better at it everyday. etnies Girl: What do you like about etnies Girl?
The thing I like about etnies Girl is that it gives girls all around the world the chance to show us what they got. It gives them that exposure that they needed to take the next step. etnies Girl: Why are you an etnies Girl?
I am an etnies Girl because I like to do my own thing, and have fun doing it. I am also confident. etnies Girl: What do you do for fun?
For fun I like playing soccer with friends, playing “DDR,” shopping, swimming, hanging out with the softball girls and definitely skating. etnies Girl: Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in books I read, music, family and friends. etnies Girl: What’s your biggest accomplishment?
My biggest accomplishment is getting recognized around the county as a good softball player and being awarded for it. etnies Girl: Why do you love skateboarding so much?
I like skating because you can go out and do your own thing. You don’t have to be some place at a certain time, so you’re never late. If you screw up on something, it’s your fault and not someone on your team’s fault. It’s completely different from softball, and that’s what I like about it. etnies Girl: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The best piece of advice I’ve gotten is to keep my weight back when I’m hitting during softball. During my freshmen year, my coach told me to do it. It’s worked ever since, and my hitting just keeps getting better and better. etnies Girl: What’s really important to you?
My friends and family are what’s important to me. If I ever need help or I’m feeling down, I can go to them and they can help me. I can tell them anything, and that’s what I love about them. Kris’ Favorite Things Place: Emerald Isle, N.C.
