Hidden Talent: I'm really good at tennis. I could probably come very close to beating Serena Williams… if I brush up on my skills a bit!
Favorite Charity: World Vision. World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization that is dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. I became involved with this charity at a very young age by participating in a "30 hour famine" to raise funds for poverty stricken communities in third world countries. Those thirty hours changed my life, and I have been an avid supporter of this charity ever since!
Pets: I have one dog named Nala. She was named after Nala from the Lion King!
What you like to do in your spare time: I love to be outside, especially when the sun is out so I enjoy playing sports, being active, and especially going to the beach!
Favorite Quote: "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." -Oscar Wilde
Favorite TV Show: I absolutely LOVE "Grey’s Anatomy". I don’t watch much television besides this show, so if it’s on you can guarantee you will find me glued to the TV!
Famous person you would most like to spend a day with: I would have to say Steve Stoute. He is an author, entrepreneur, and advertising executive. His drive, work ethic, and creativity are inspiring!
Your go-to Philadelphia area restaurant: Max Brenner’s, Chocolate by the Bald Man! I randomly ran across this restaurant while walking through Center City and the smell of chocolate from the inside lured me in. Hands down, this has been one of the most creative restaurants I have ever been to in Philly thus far! The food is great but it’s a definite "go-to" place for any chocolate lover. I would recommend having dessert before dinner!
Favorite cartoon character: I really like Spongebob Squarepants. He is the only cartoon character that can still manage to make me laugh until my stomach hurts.
Best advice you’ve ever received: Find something that you love to do; something you are passionate about that drives you creatively. When you find that thing, stick with it, and you will always be happy, you will always be successful. There is no true success without happiness and happiness lives in what you love.
Something on your bucket list: I would love to serve in the Peace Corps. When the time is right, it’s definitely something I will cross off my list.
Pre-game superstitions or rituals: I mentally run our dances over in my mind, step-by-step, before we line up in the tunnel, and I always say a prayer for a great performance. Also, coming together with my teammates and doing our team chant right before we enter the field!
Song that gets you pumped up: Beyonce’s "Run The World". Girl Power!
