Sabrina Cardone - Top Ten & People's Choice Winner

1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
My favorite food is probably mochi, which is a rice cake from Japan. It can be sweet or savory. When I first tried mochi, I got the ice cream kind from the supermarket with my family. I loved it, so when I found out that a famous 119 year old mochi place was in little Tokyo, CA (we happened to be in CA) I drove there with my papa and was so excited to try it! We loved it! I like the pounding process to traditionally make it. I love that it comes from Japan, because I have such an affinity for that culture. I also love the way it tastes, and the customizable feature about it, you can pick any flavor and a wide variety of fillings. I always keep mochi ice cream in my freezer.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
I think the best kind of date would be a date where I get to spend time with my family. Once I went to the grand canyon with my family in a helicopter, it was one of the best experiences of my life, and better yet, it was with my family. We were talking to each other over the telecom, and my sister was singing, it was a bonding, wonderful experience! Another perfect date would be spending time with my friends, playing basketball, and eating ice cream. Those are my ideas of a perfect date!

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
On my weekends I like to go horseback riding, one of the reasons I love horseback riding is because when I’m on a horse, 15 times my weight, and I'm telling him on where to go, I tell him to slow down speed up, go left or right, jump, and with the right commands, the horse actually listens to me, it makes me feel able to control my environment, and helps me relax, focus, and get my mind onto something I love for 90 minutes.

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
I went shopping online about 2 months ago for some new sweaters and skirts. I bought these at Lauren Ralph Lauren, because I love the classy style their clothes have. I'm a BIG fan of sweaters, I love how comfortable they are, and I love that they are so stylish! So I bought a few AWESOME sweaters and two AMAZING skirts.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
I don't think makeup is important, I believe that everyone is beautiful, and that nobody should wear makeup to be the standard example of “beautiful”. That being said, makeup is an effective way to enhance natural beauty, or maybe I want to create a certain effect; dramatic, humorous, cute etc. But, let's be clear, No one needs to wear makeup to be beautiful, but if someone wants to make themselves look a little bit special with some lip gloss or eyeshadow, I think that is very important. The act of getting ready to look nice for someone else is really good, it shows that you care about the person, but most of all, I think if you wear makeup you should wear it to make yourself happy.
