Personal

  • Born Sept. 1
  • Favorite athlete: Marta Viera da Silva
  • Why chose GC: "Because of the friendly college environment that is seen through the campus life when I first set foot on it. Of course, the fact that I got recruited as well is another reason!"
  • Biggest sports thrill: when I get past a defender and see nothing but goalie and I, and I take the shot and see it going in the opposite direction of where the goalie dives
  • Pre-game ritual: listen to a Nicki Minaj song and have a dance party [others are welcome to join]
  • Scares you the most: head injuries and death
  • Favorite song: God is a Woman
  • Movie: Sweeney Todd
  • TV show: Black Mirror
  • Lives by the motto: "Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard."
