8. All-time favorite board game? Sorry

10. What is your favorite local restaurant? El Tarasco

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? Rob Dyrdek Fantasy Factory

12. What is your greatest fear? The Ankle Slicer (the guy that hides under your car at night and slices your Achilles).

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? I can lighten up any tense moment and I'm the goofy one.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Chocolate, pickles, and mac and cheese. Not mixed together of course!

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? My favorite time of the day is 7:00 p.m. which is game time, WHOOOP!

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? My volleyball nickname is Fleener because it comes out smoother when I get yelled at! But my grandpa calls me Rocky because I fell down a hill face first and got rocks stuck in my hand!

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Scarlet Hope and Down Syndrome of Louisville.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? For all my Holy Cross volleyball girls: my hidden talent - I can disassemble/reassemble a window and screen in no time.

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 travel forward in time to see if my career assessment test correctly predicted my career as a circus performer, school bus driver, or bailiff.

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 Eminem, did the real Slim Shady ever stand up?
