I would want to witness Olympic sand volleyball. I would love to watch Misty Mae Treanor and hopefully I can get some pointers.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Travel to Texas... I want to go see a good rodeo and see some country guys.

Getting baptized... That day I felt like a new person. I love being a Christian and learning new things about God in the Bible.

If you could pick any profession in life (regardless of education, money, judgment, or training) what would it be? What's stopping you?
I would like to do Radiology. That was my first decision on what I would like to do, but I changed it because I realized I wouldn’t want to do anything in the medical field.

Christmas! Every year my mom and I put up the tree and decorate. I just loving giving and receiving presents. Also, I love doing Operation Christmas Child at my church.

I wish I could do gymnastics. I am probably the most inflexible person there is.
What is one piece of advice you would give a young athlete who aspires to be a college athlete?
You have to have the heart and desire to play. If you have those and the talent, then you would be an unstoppable player.
If you had not pursued volleyball, which sport would you have pursued, and why?
I would run track. I’ve run track since seventh grade. I’ve always been the fastest girl in my high school. I just love running open and relay events.
