Veronica Grizzle’s home state of Kansas was not the only thing in her rear view mirror when she headed to college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She also left behind nine very important people in her life; her parents and her seven siblings.
“There’s never a dull moment,” said Grizzle, “We’re all pretty independent, but I’ve had to figure a lot of things out on my own.”
The three hour drive to her hometown of DeSoto can easily be made if she gets homesick, but Grizzle keeps busy at UNL. The senior is majoring in Broadcasting and Film Studies as well as being on the UNL track team. She competes in the hammer throw and shot put. Even in the off-season, she is busy coaching track camp every year from November to February.
When Grizzle does have downtime, she enjoys hanging out with friends and listening to any kind of music, but country and Miley Cyrus. Cracking jokes to make her friends laugh is another one of Grizzle’s passions. “I try to have a good sense of humor around people,” Grizzle said, “A lot of people like to make fun of me, but I can take it.”
Busy, busy, busy is the story of Veronica Grizzle’s life, but after graduation in May 2014 hopefully she will be able to catch her breath to focus on getting her dream job: working on the set of a television show.
