1. What is your proudest athletic moment? Definitely scoring the winning goal of the state championship game was a proud moment, especially because it was my senior season, against our rival, and there was only one minute left in OT!

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? Any kind of fruit, specifically honeycrisp apples

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? If I ever tried out for American Idol please change the channel!

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? Roger Federer because he makes tennis look effortless.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? “SQUIRRELS!” – UP. I love that movie it is so sweet.

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? We pray the Hail Mary before every game that helps me focus because it means game time. 

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Spongebob, I used to watch it all the time.

8. All time favorite board game? Apples to Apples

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? iPhone and my favorite app is snapchat—we have a love/hate relationship.

10. What is your favorite local (non chain) restaurant? Sapporo by far. I could eat the burrito roll everyday. 

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? I watch just about every reality TV show but I’d have to say the Bachelor and Bachelorette.

12. What is your greatest fear? I have a severe sticker phobia.

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? I’m good at staying calm in stressful situations. I think this is most helpful in tennis because there is no team on the court to calm me down.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? I AM A CHOCOHOLIC.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 3 a.m. because I’m usually sleeping

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? MTK (Miss Teen Kentucky) – when I was nine I was always late to tennis practice because I couldn’t decide what outfit to wear and how to do my hair, so my coach started calling me Miss Teen Kentucky (MTK for short)

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Habitat for Humanity

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can speak a very convincing gibberish Italian.  If you’re not Italian you wouldn’t know the difference.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Backward – I don’t want to do anything differently, I just want to relive it.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask my sister how many times she wore my clothes without me knowing.
