About me

Hi there, I am Megan Accetta. I am a 21-year-old college student at Salisbury University in Maryland. I grew up and still reside in New Jersey, on the mainland between Ocean City and Atlantic City, NJ. Growing up in the town I did, we were very secluded and privileged but my mom taught me a lesson that I have grown to live by and that is treat others better than you want to be treated. This lesson has carried me a long way and I am so grateful that she taught and instilled this lesson in me from such a young age.

I remember one time my basketball coach came up to my mom after our game and complemented her on the way she raised me. She stepped back puzzled and asked him what he meant by that, before thanking him properly. He simply replied, “She is the most down to earth, well grounded, and polite girl I have ever met from Linwood.” My mom thanked him and smiled at me as I ran toward her, eager to go home. Later that night my mom told me what my coach had said and the way she looked at me while telling me how proud she was of me helped me become the person I am today.

Family is a huge priority in my life so I am sure you would be interested to know that I am 1 of 8 children, mind you not from all the same parents but never the less my siblings all the same. Growing up in a big family had its ups and downs but I wouldn’t trade them for the world. My younger sister Rachel however is my favorite, which I probably shouldn’t say but it is true and everyone knows it. As a result of being so family oriented I tend to find friends that I believe to be as important to me as family. Growing up in a small town you know and are friendly with pretty much everyone. My junior year of high school however I began hanging out with the same people all the time and nothing has changed in the past five years.

My friend family is made up of six guys and five girls. We do everything together. All of our parents are friends and I plan on carrying my friendship with them for the rest of my life. As well as the friendships I have developed in college. Friends mean the world to me but I would rather have four quarters than a hundred pennies and that is why I treat my friends like family.

Starting at age seven and continuing all through high school I was a cheerleader. Cheerleading is such an interesting and dangerous sport which excited me. Having thrill issues I was a flyer, which is the person they throw up in the air. The feeling of flying through the air is indescribable and that is the reason I love the sport so much. I felt something not a lot of people get to experience, the feeling of soaring the air and being free if only for a moment in time.

I like to believe that I am a free spirit who seeks opportunities that allow myself to feel free, if only for a second. Whether it be friendship, family, roller-coaster, cliff jumping, climbing, exploring, yoga, long walks on the beach, surfing, jet skiing, and so much more. These are all activities that I enjoy taking part in because for only a moment in time I am in that moment, living, breathing, and free. I find that I seek thrill, excitement, activities that turn my stomach and make me nervous. Why this is I don’t know but what I do know is that my life has been far from ordinary so far and I plan on keeping it that way. Being ordinary doesn’t make for a great story so make sure to step out of your comfort zone I bet you will love what you find.
