Jordan Pruitt is Dirt Bike Cool

Jordan Pruitt is Dirt Bike Cool

After giving a speech at Oak Ridge Elementary School in Tallahassee, Fla., Jordan Pruitt caught her breath and sat down to talk with

The 17-year-old Permission to Fly performer was happy to present the elementary school with a grand prize worth over $200,000 in technology products, software, and cash grants. Samsung Electonics sponsored the annual Hope for Education essay contest with the topic: “How has technology educated you on helping the environment and how or why has it changed your behavior to be more environmentally friendly?”

Here’s what Jordan shared with JJJ:

JJJ: The topic of the essay contest for the event you were at today was about being green. How do you go green in your own life?

JP: I’m really environmentally friendly. We (my family and I) recycle. I’m going to get a new car and it’s going to be a hybrid of some sort. We’ve been looking at all types of cars, but I don’t have any particular one in mind.

JJJ: Did you read the winning essay yourself?

JP: Yes, it was actually only two paragraphs and it was really good. It was a first grade teacher who wrote the essay. The school gets a choice of computers, TVs, and all different kinds of electronics they can choose from.

JJJ: What are your holiday plans?

JP: My holiday plans are just to spend as much time with my family as I can. I have two weeks off which I am really excited about.

JJJ: You performed “The Christmas Song” at the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Carol by Candlelight. Did you perform any others?

JP: We’re loading all the other videos today on my YouTube. I sang “The Christmas Song”, “O Holy Night”, one of my Christmas songs called “Celebrate Love” and two others off my album, “One Love” and “Unconditional”.

JJJ: What is your favorite holiday song?

JP: It would probably have to be “A Christmas Song” actually. I’ve always sang it ever since I was a little girl and I was really excited to perform with a live band for that song.

JJJ: Do you have any New Year plans?

JP: For New Year’s, I’m singing at the Houston Rockets halftime show. I’m so excited. I love basketball and I’m really excited to sing there. I’m hoping to spend it with my best friend.

JJJ: What is your New Year’s Resolution?

JP: My resolution is probably to stop biting my nails. That’s a really bad one but every year I try to make it something about breaking a bad habit.

JJJ: What is the best gift you’ve ever received?

JP: The best gift I ever got was a dirt bike from my parents. It was so cool. I probably don’t look like someone who would ride a dirt bike. We [my family] have a lot of land and four-wheelers and dirt bikes. I love to ride my dirt bike. That is the best gift I’ve ever gotten.
