Each week during the 2014-15 year beginning in late October, the Fox Valley Association will feature two student-athletes (one male and one female) from one of its 10 schools for a "Student-Athlete Spotlight" Q & A segment. The segments will be posted every Tuesday and Thursday and individuals are selected by the school.

Favorite aspect of your school: One of my favorite things about Appleton West is the school spirit and sense of pride that is felt in our building. There are many different groups of students, but it is cool to see them collectively rally around a team, or sport like they do during homecoming week.
Favorite aspect about being involved in school activities: I enjoy that I get to meet people that I normally wouldn’t have met. It allows me to interact and get to know many more people, as well as meeting students from other schools.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been the most rewarding and why? During the end of my Junior year I was asked to spend time with a student from Wilson Middle School. This student was going through some hard times that I could relate to. I saw him once a week and tried to help him in any way that I could. As I spent time with him I had some great conversations with him, even though he was many years younger than me. I am privileged to know him, and things are looking up for him.
College or post-high school plans: I have applied to a few Big Ten schools, and I hope that I get accepted to either the University of Wisconsin-Madison or the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.
What is your desired major/career field: I am going to study engineering at the institute that I attend.
What is your favorite class: Calculus BC
Who is your favorite teacher: Mme. Leopold
Favorite book: Einstein’s Dreams
What is the best advice one of your coaches has given you: When times get hard you have to grind and work through them. The ability to never give in despite facing adversity shows the quality of your character.
Something that you would be surprised to know about me is…: I am a second degree black belt.
