1. What is your proudest athletic moment? During my sophomore year, my team was playing Meade County, and the score was 7-2 going into the bottom of the seventh inning. I led off that inning with a single, and finished the game with a suicide squeeze bunt to win the game.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? Oranges

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? “Yellow” by Coldplay

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? Jessica Mendoza has always inspired me because she is an amazing hitter and has an unbelievable dedication to softball. I met her while at a camp in Indiana when she was pregnant and she was very encouraging of the girls to continue their education in college regardless of whether they would be college athletes and offered very helpful advice for hitting.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? "You is kind. You is smart. You is important." – The Help

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? I often pray to God before, during, & after games and practices for strength and guidance. Softball has allowed me to further build my friendship with God in this way.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Spongebob

8. All-time favorite board game? Apples to Apples

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? iPhone, Instagram

10. What is your favorite local restaurant? El Nopal

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? The Voice

12. What is your greatest fear? Drowning or suffocating

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? I'm compassionate, and I give good advice.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Peanut Butter and Oreos

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why?  I like twilight because the sun is setting, and the time usually brings about cooler weather and beautiful sunsets.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? My nicknames are "AJ" (my initials) because of the numerous Ally's on my softball teams and "Lil Red" because of my hair color.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? I love to volunteer at Compassion, an LGBT support group from the Cathedral of the Assumption, where I worked for my Senior Service Project.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can sing moderately well but I am too shy to do it in front of other people.

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 because my mind usually wanders to the future rather than staying in the present, and I like reading books and watching movies that theorize what the future of the world will be like.

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 Anne Frank how she was able to keep an optimistic view of the world and a compassionate approach towards people during WWII.
