Three Words to Describe Yourself Determined, caring, and hardworking Keep moving forward
Whose Your Toughest Opponent: Myself, I can get in my head too much sometimes, but I have to let it go and move to the next moment without dwelling on the past. Myself
What are you working to improve on? Being a bigger asset in scoring in basketball and staying out of my head when something doesn’t go right and moving to the next play. Reducing the time it takes me to use a move (stop thinking so much)
What inspires you to keep training and competing? My family and friends and my determination to always keep improving and prove to everyone what I can do as an athlete. I want to get better, as simple as that
Your Best Sports Memory Getting to play with some of my best friends on and off the court and all the team bonding we get to do before games getting hype together and going to dinner together after basketball games and fight our way to the state championship for volleyball this year. Every time someone wins, they all hold the spot that I remember
What are your plans after you graduate from Siegel? I want to go to college and study pre-med while majoring in biology but I’m not sure where I would like to attend yet. Tech school
Your Favorite Food? Pizza Pizza

What’s on Your Playlist? Christian, rap, and country music especially lots of Keith Urban Alternative rock
What’s the Most Embarrassing Thing on Your Playlist? The whole first High School Musical movie track Anime songs
If You had one wish, what would it be? To be able to play basketball at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and graduate, to go to med school then travel the world as an orthopedic surgeon helping athletes all around. Wish I could’ve started wrestling earlier
What most people don’t know about you? I used to play soccer, swim, dance, and play the piano. I never settle on one thing, thoughts are everchanging
Your Favorite Class? Science Weightlifting
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would like to travel to Greece because it’s such a beautiful and lovely country and the beaches look amazing! Japan, it looks peaceful
Your Hero? My grandparents with all the dedication and sacrifice they did for our family while also battling cancer and beating it at a point in life. My parents are my heroes every day, always look up to them no matter what
Social Media you are on? I’m on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and Tic Tok. Instagram, Tik Tok
If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would that be? I would like to have dinner with Pat Summit, she’s such an inspiration to me as a basketball player and how she coached her team with such passion that makes her know as one of the best women’s basketball coaches and she coached at my dream school the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. My uncle Tracie
If you could have any superpower, what would you have? I’d like to be able to read people’s minds around me so I could always understand what they might be saying. The power to see someone’s true objective
Your house is burning down and you can only take one thing out, what do you take? I’d take my picture frame board, so I’d always have my memories with my family, my friends, and my sports. If it is a personal possession it would be my phone, need to make sure I can tell someone what happened
