Profile:

Audrey is an enormous science fiction and fantasy fan, especially of J.R.R. Tolkien. She even speaks a little Sindarin, the main Elvish language. In fact, the Lord of the Rings movies are some of her favorites, alongside The Avengers, both Thor films, and The Princess Bride.  Actor and Thor star Tom Hiddleston has become one of her favorite celebrities. She finds him charming because of his clever and carefree nature. In her free time, Audrey takes art classes and voice lessons at the local art academy. She would like to be more involved in theater, as well, and plans to pursue a career in music or performance arts.
