When did you get your start in sports?

I started playing in the 8th grade

Who’s your hero or role model?

My role model isn’t really a person but rather my future self. I always think about the person I could be and how I can make my family proud and that’s what drive me to do the best I can in the moment, because I know that I’ll never get to that point of being that person because I am always striving for the future potential that I can hold.

Where do you hope to be in 5-10 years?

In five to ten years, I hope to be a home interior designer and I hope to start a family. Those two things have been my dream for as long as I can remember.

Who is your favorite professional sports team?

My favorite professional team is probably NAU Volleyball because they were my very first team I ever got to watch in person. I remember when I got to meet some of the players and it made me want to play volleyball even more, and to try to be like them.
