    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    I enjoy the competitiveness of sports and the rivalries. I also love being with my friends throughout the seasons. I have been lucky to have teammates that everyone gets along with, and that are friends.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    Probably going undefeated in JV basketball my 10th grade year and winning the league this year in basketball.  
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
    My family. I always use to look up to my cousin when playing sports and my family and I would always play pick up games.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    When you get home after a long practice or a late night game and you still have a ton of homework to do, and all you want to do is sit and relax.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    I plan to attend MVCC in the fall to study occupational therapy.
