Q: Why did you choose the Tribe?
Well...how about you tell me "Why wouldn't I choose the Tribe?"

Q: Describe a moment when you felt the most Tribe pride...
A moment I felt the most Tribe Pride was when Todd Weaver's family came to our All-Sports Banquet and thanked us for our hard work and dedication with the "One Tribe, One Family" campaign.

Q: Take us through your pre-game mental preparation routine:
I like to crank the music in the locker room, mostly rap, and just rap all the lyrics. Gets me hype, and takes my mind off my nerves.

Q: Do you belong to any other clubs, groups, or organizations?
I recently joined the Development Ambassadors for the College. I don't know what to expect but it should be a great opportunity to meet people and alums that give back to the school.

Q: What are some community activities you or your team have done?
Our team works with The ARC of Greater Williamsburg a lot throughout the school year. Each year we do a basketball clinic, and it's always a ton of fun.

Q: Describe your dream job:
My dream job would be to have a guest appearance on Law and Order:SVU, or host my own radio talk show. My talk show would either be called, "Oh Hey Chayyy!" or "That's What Chay Said!". That would be beast!

Q: If you could play another sport at W&M what would it be and why?
If I could play another sport at W&M it would be Volleyball, they get to wear costumes to practice on Halloween, and not very much running involved.

Q: Favorite team tradition/activity and why?
My favorite team tradition is when we go on trips calling Coach Taylor, "mom". It's funny because we all have on matching outfits, and we are usually really obnoxious.

Q: Which teammate will have the most interesting job in 10 years and why?
Jackie, because I guarantee I won't be able to spell nor pronounce what she's doing, but it'll change the world.

Q: What is your favorite quote or phrase?
"The only thing constant in life is change" -Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Q: What is your favorite type of food (i.e. Chinese, Mexican, etc.)?
African American Food, better known as Soul Food. 

Q: Favorite place you have visited or traveled to and why?
My favorite place that I have visited is a tie between Seattle, and the University of Wisconsin.  Seattle was a just a cool place in general, from Pike's Place to the diversity of people. We went to University of Wisconsin on the day of a football game and it was cool to see the environment on game day at a large institution.

Q: If you could sit down for lunch with anyone in the world who would it be and why?

If I could sit down for lunch with anyone in the world it would be children living in an under-developed country. I think it would be a great learning experience and humbling. Also I love kids, and no matter what, it seems that children can only see, and represent the beauty in the world.

Q: Most addicting television show?
The most addicting television show is Law and Order: SVU.

Q: How will you change the world (or even just one person's world)?
You know I don't have the answer to that yet, but I hope however I do it's everlasting to the purpose, cause or person, even if it's the most minute of gestures.

Q: Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know...
I used to collect Barbies... like hardcore, I've got like 50+ in my room at home.  Rule #1 of collecting Barbies...DO NOT LET YOUR YOUNGER SISTER'S OPEN THE BOXES!

Q: What's number one on your bucket list and why?
Number one on my bucket list is to go to Africa. Not only have a heard only amazing things about the experiences that others have had there, I feel like there is just so much culture embedded in one place.

Q: What is your best non-athletic skill?
Hands down...dancing. Wait, is that considered athletic?

Q: What is something you are afraid of? 
I'm not afraid of bugs, but I just don't want them on me. Point blank...I'll fight an ant.

Q: What is an obstacle you had to overcome in your life?
In relation to sports, the biggest obstacle I've had to overcome is and was tearing both of my ACLs. Never in a million years would wish any injury on an athlete, but especially this one.
