This Month's Athlete
Sport(s) Played: Basketball
Q1: Why did you choose the sport(s) that you play?
I started playing in first grade for school and really enjoyed it! A lot of the kids in my neighborhood would play so that definitely encouraged me to enjoy it more.
Q2: What is your favorite Madeira sports memory?
Last season, when we won the CHL and cut down the net. Everybody was so excited and proud of our accomplishments, plus dumping the water coolers on Jared’s head!
Q3: How do you get motivated to practice each and every day?
I don’t want to let my teammates or myself down by not putting in my full effort whenever I’m on the court. I also am motivated by the younger girls who might look up to me as a role model or leader.
Q4: What superpower do you wish you had and how would you use it?
Honestly, I wish I could read minds. I feel like it would make everything so much easier to know what other people are thinking.
Q5: Which athlete(s) would you like to have dinner with and what would you talk about?
Kobe Bryant- I would want to talk about his incredible career and everything that went on behind the
scenes that the fans don’t know about.
Q6: What makes a great teammate?
Somebody who I can trust on and off the court to make decisions that would benefit the team to lead us to success. Or maybe somebody who I can joke around with during practices and games lol.
Q7: What is on your pre-game playlist?
There’s a whole variety of songs, but some of my favorites right now would be Endless Fashion, Surround Sound, and Hot Wings.
Q8: What is the funniest thing that you have seen or happened to you in a practice or game?
I can’t pinpoint a specific moment, but a general statement would be that every game, at least one of us falls in some ridiculously funny way on the court.
Q9: What is next after you graduate?
I plan to go to college and study biomedical sciences on the pre-med track.
Q10: What advice would you give an 8th grade athlete as they move on to high school sports?
Be committed to the season, practices, games, teammates, and coaches. It’s an incredible
program to be a part of, but the season can be mentally and physically exhausting, so it’s very

and enjoy the next four years!
