Road trip stories: My family and my cousins drove down to Georgia one summer and we were in stop and go traffic for hours. There was a point where our cars were next to each other and we passed twizzlers back and forth between the cars.
Who is your role model: My role model is my bushia because she perserveres through the toughest of times. She was able to come back from a knee surgery in record time. She just has so much will power and I wish I could have more of it.
What do you like to do outside of your sport: I love to read and watch netflix (not TV). I really love to bike and play frisbee. After coming to Hanover I now like hiking.
Other athletes in your family: My sister and brother both run cross country and track.
Favorite part of Hanover outside of class: My favorite part is how active Hanover is. There are always people running and working out and it seems busy for how small it is.
