6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? I usually pray before games and I recognize that my talents are from God so I try to honor Him with my play.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? My favorite cartoon show was Kim Possible.

8. All-time favorite board game? Rummikub (although it’s not played on a board).

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? Wis: There is another Caroline on my club and high school team. To specify which is which, everyone started using our last names, and then mine got shortened down even further to just “Wis.”

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Twinbrook Nursing Home. I really like working with the residents there. I like hearing their stories that they have to share about their lives and even their perspectives of being in historical events.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can make a really loud “pop” sound with my tongue.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would want to go way back in time so I could see the world when it was first created and untouched by man.

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 Noah what it was like to be on the ark, during the flood, with all the animals for such a long time with nothing but water all around him?
