Favorite aspect of your school: I love how West takes pride in supporting our teams and clubs at events. I think it's awesome how we all get along and try to make it out to sporting events, theater's plays and even concerts.

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Every summer I look forward to helping at the Appleton West Youth Girl's Basketball Camp! We do a lot of fun drills that allows us players to help and get to know the younger kids. Although this isn't necessarily a service project, it's very rewarding to me to get to know the younger girls who are working hard to improve their skills.
