Q: Why did you choose the Tribe?
I chose the tribe because I fell in love with the team atmosphere, and all of the girls that were a part of it. The combination of a great school academically and athletically was a key factor also.

Q: Describe a moment when you felt the most Tribe pride...
On my official visit I was able to watch my future Tribe team compete. They looked like they were having a blast during the competition and it made me want to go out and join them. It was just very exciting to watch.

Q: Take us through your pre-game mental preparation routine:
Before I am about to compete, I like to visualize myself hitting the entire routine, skill by skill
Q: What are some community activities you or your team have done?
I am an incoming freshman, so I am not entirely sure what community activities my team has participated in, but this September we are volunteering at the Patriot Triathlon. In October, we are planning on participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, and in November we are volunteering at the Mayflower Marathon.

Q: What is your intended or declared major and why?
I plan on Double Majoring in Kinesiology and Neuroscience. I want to ultimately go to Med-School, to work towards becoming some kind of a doctor.

Q: Describe your dream job:
I am not 100 percent sure of what I want to do when I graduate, but I know I want to be in the medical field, doing something where I can help people.

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 have to be lacrosse. It is such a fun game to watch, and it seems really challenging.

Q: Favorite team tradition/activity and why?
I have not participated in any traditions or activities yet, but my team does an annual ropes course, which seems like a lot of fun.

Q: Which teammate will have the most interesting job in 10 years and why?
Allie Marko or Jen Ware will probably have the most interesting jobs in 10 years because they are both double majors in kinesiology and neuroscience, so they have a lot of different job possibilities.

Q: What animal would best describe you and why?
A monkey, because I am outgoing and love to be around other people.

Q: What is your favorite quote or phrase?
"Success is not final: Failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."
- Winston Churchill

Q: What is your favorite type of food (i.e. Chinese, Mexican, etc.)?

My favorite place that I have visited would be Mexico, because I love the weather and there are so many things to do, and sites to visit.

Q: If you could sit down for lunch with anyone in the world who would it be and why?
If I could choose one person to sit and have lunch with it would probably be Ellen Degeneres, because I love watching her on TV and she is extremely funny.

So You Think You Can Dance
