Get to know the volleyball player from Huron…
Q: Favorite fast food restaurant?
A: Taco Bell!
Q: If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
A: If teleportation is allowed to be a super power I would definitely choose that because I love traveling and I could go anywhere I wanted, when I wanted to!
Q: Something most people do not know about you?
A: I’m ambidextrous.
Q: Favorite aspect of volleyball?
A: I’m an outside hitter so I’ll have to say hitting is my favorite, I love the feeling you get after a big kill and your whole team goes crazy!
Q: Favorite pre-game music?
A: Anything you can dance to! Our team has dance parties before all of our games and it really helps to get us pumped up!
Q: Favorite YouTube video?
A: I’m not huge on YouTube but anything funny.
Q: Facebook or Twitter?
Q: Best and worst part of college athletics?
A: I love traveling with my team so that’s the best for me; and the worst part I would say is how big of a strain it puts on my body. I feel like crawling back to my dorm after every game and practice.
Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
A: In ten years I’ll hopefully be living somewhere tropical and doing something I love!
