"ZOOMers would probably agree, and say that I'm also a good friend. My family is really great! Besides my mom and dad, I have a brother and sister. They've given me the nickname "Comet Tail" because my Dad and Grandpa used to launch me into the deep end of our olympic pool. My favorite ZOOMactivity is the ZOOMsci & Dancing Raisins. See if you can make some raisins dance! And to all the ZOOMers out there: Hope you enjoy the show! We have a blast making it. You should see all of the funnys. On the ZOOMset, I'm famous for my imagination. Like sometimes, I would wear my half ponytail to the left instead of the right."
