What is your major? 

Bible and Elementary Education

When did you start playing basketball? 

I started playing basketball with my siblings on our patio before I could even hit the rim. I started playing on a team when I was in 6th grade.

What is your favorite sports team and/or player?

Golden State Warriors/Stephen Curry

Highlight of your sports career?

I don't really have one highlight, but the my favorite thing was being able to play with my sister and having some amazing sister plays.

What type of growth have you seen in yourself through your years of playing? 

I have grown from wanting to save something for the last quarter or the next game to being one who wasn't afraid of giving her all on the court.

Name the individual who has impacted you the most in your playing career, and how they have influenced you. 

Though many people have impacted my playing career, my parents are ones who have impacted me the most. My dad is the one who taught me how to shoot, dribble, pass, and become the player that I am today. My mom is the one who was diligent in getting me to every practice and she was always there to cheer me on. They have also helped me grow in the Lord-- not only in my everyday life, but also through basketball.

Favorite Passage of Scripture and why?

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. It tells me that in whatever circumstance, I am in to rejoice, pray, and give thanks because it is God's will.
