Linda Himes started bowling at the young age of six years old. When asked about such a young beginning, she replied with, “My family has been around the bowling alley all of my life.” Linda has a big heart and a big time talent for bowling. She travels around the country to participate in tournaments. When questioned about tournaments, Himes said, “Some tournaments I travel at least 24 hours.” Being only a sophomore in high school, Linda isn’t always sought out as the top competitor, but her skill quickly brushes past the stereotype. She plans on bowling in college and eventually bowling in the professional leagues. Her dream college would be Webber International in Babson Park, Florida. Not only does she bowl, she is also a member of the Arkansas High band. She plays the saxophone. She also has a YouTube channel called, Fruitymelon melon. She started her YouTube channel, “just to make people laugh!” Linda loves to win, but she also bowls because she absolutely loves it. Linda says that she wants to ¨prove to myself that I am great at something I love.¨
