Favorite aspect of your school: I love the potential every teacher sees in each student. They all push us to do our best and help us in any way they can so that we can be successful. 
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? The most rewarding service project I have been a part of was working a Special Olympics softball tournament. I was able to spend time getting to know many athletes who shared the same passion for sports as I do. It was incredible to see so much talent and so much happiness in one place. 
College or post-high school plans: I am attending UW-Madison next fall, where I plan to study pre-med. Although I will not be continuing my athletics, I look forward to playing intramurals and attending as many sporting events as I can.   
What is your desired major/career field? I hope to study pre-med, ultimately leading to a career as a pediatrician. 
What is your favorite class? Human Anatomy 
Who is your favorite teacher? Ms. Kurowski
Favorite youth coach: Dean Managan and Todd Noack 
What is the best advice one of your coaches has given you? It's cliche, but the best advice I've been given is to never give up, no matter what the challenge is. These words have helped not only on the basketball and volleyball courts, but in my life in general. As I struggled through a back injury, this advice has reminded me to push through the adversity and overcome obstacles. 
Something people would be surprised to know about me is…: Two of my greatest fears: public speaking and clowns
