Q: Why did you choose the Tribe?
I fell in love with the campus and I had a blast with the team when I came on my official visit.

Q: Describe a moment when you felt the most Tribe pride...
I feel the most Tribe pride whenever I'm at the football games. Everyone who's everyone is there. It's an awesome atmosphere to be a part of and the entire stadium is all about the Tribe. All of the athletes sit near each other and all of the non-athletes are up in the stands doing their cheers and it's just so much fun.

Q: Take us through your pre-game mental preparation routine:
Well, the first thing I do is listen to music that gets me excited to play-I don't have a set band or song that I listen to, its whatever type of music I'm feeling. Then once we warm up and have our pre-game locker room meeting, I'm always nervous but at the same time, I cannot wait to get on the court. I don't have real mental preparation. I just need some good songs to listen to.

Q: Do you belong to any other clubs, groups, or organizations?
I did an internship this summer with an organization called The Arc and I am continuing to volunteer with them.

Q: What are some community activities you or your team have done?
Our team works with The Arc and we go to their Fitness classes and do yoga with them and every year we hold a basketball clinic for The Arc. They LOVE it.  We have also done the Salvation Army ringing the bell outside of Martin's.

Q: What is your intended or declared major and why?
I am majoring in Kinesiology and maybe doing a double major in Education. I was always interested learning about the body and how it functions. I was thinking about becoming a PT or a chiropractor. I always wanted a job that was involved with sports and medicine together. I am also interested in special education for kids so that's the reason why I chose Education as a second major.

Q: Describe your dream job:
If I could have any job in the world, it would definitely be a quarterback for an NFL team... (Jets!) haha...

Q: If you could play another sport at W&M what would it be and why?
I would definitely play volleyball. I played in high school and I love it.

Q: Which teammate will have the most interesting job in 10 years and why?
Chanel. Chanel cannot work in a cubicle somewhere and work on the computer or do filing, etc. She won't survive.  So she'll definitely be out in the world somewhere either working with kids or doing something crazy and getting a bunch of free stuff....and I also think she'll be rich.

Q: What animal would best describe you and why?
A fish. They have little features but big bodies...just like me. I have a small mouth, small hands, small ears, small eyes. But a long body...like a fish!

Q: What is your favorite quote or phrase?
"I love you." It's simple, to the point, and it's the best thing someone could ever hear. 

Q: What is your favorite type of food (i.e. Chinese, Mexican, etc.)?
My favorite type of food is Italian, even though I do not have an ounce of Italian in me. Chicken parm is the best.

Q: If you could sit down for lunch with anyone in the world who would it be and why?
The Kardashian Family. I watch their show all the time and they have the craziest conversations. Clearly not a "normal" family.

Q: Most addicting television show?
I have so many. I am now officially addicted to The Office but I know pretty much every episode of Will and Grace and Friends. Test me. I dare you.

Q: How will you change the world (or even just one person's world)?
Make that person feel better about their self. Laugh at their jokes, funny or not, take time out to talk to them, make them feel important in some way. Remember something they told you and bring it up again at another time, and definitely remember their name!

Q: Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know...
I'm used to be scared of the people dressed up in character costumes at Disney World or other amusement parks.

Q: What's number one on your bucket list and why?
To go to Ireland. I've always wanted to go! It looks amazing and everyone that I know who went there said they loved it.

Q: Favorite Person to follow on Twitter?
Patti Stanger from millionaire matchmaker. She's hilarious, brutally honest, and pretty helpful. Haha.

Q: What is your biggest pet peeve and why?
When drawers, cabinets and doors are left open when they are meant to be closed. It drives me up a wall.

Q: What is something you are afraid of?
Going back to my apartment after watching a scary movie somewhere else because I feel like the bad guy or ghost or whatever is going to pop out of somewhere when I walk into my apt.
