He's influenced me in such incredible ways by always giving me courage and confidence. I pray before my meets asking that God gives me the courage to do my best and the confidence that my hard work will pay off.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? The Special Olympics; I've been volunteering since I was nine and now help to coordinate and run the meet.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can juggle for like ten seconds straight.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Backwards because my childhood was so much fun, and looking back on pictures from the past makes me realize how blessed I am to have so many memories I cherish.

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 Harry Styles' to ask me to marry him.
