    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    What I enjoy most about participating in sports is definitely the aspect of being part of a team. When your team succeeds it’s a great sense of accomplishment.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    My most memorable athletic moment was winning league in soccer my senior year. It was a great feeling to know our hard work paid off.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
    Both of my parents have really inspired me to play sports. They’ve always encouraged me to do what I love and for me that was participating in athletics. They’ve always been super supportive, which is great.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    My greatest challenge in balancing academics and sports is finding time to get all of my schoolwork done. I try to plan around game days so I have my school work done ahead of time.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    I plan to major in nursing at a four-year college and then go on to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist.
