I play volleyball for Trinity right now, but I haven’t always played two sports.

I have been able to make some of my best friends, but I have also been able to line my classes up with the degree I want to study.

Where do you plan to play college softball?

I plan to attend college at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

What college teams have shown interest in you?

Many schools have shown interest such as Florida, Virginia Tech, FIU, and many others, but none of them hit home like UNCC.

Do you have any siblings who play sports?

I do not have any siblings who play sports.

How much have your parents helped you in your softball pursuit?

My parents have been my biggest supporters and my biggest critics. They have been my drivers and my motivators.

Whom else would you like to thank for your success?

I also would like to thank my trainer, Coach Jayson Smith, for helping me recover from my surgeries. I would also like to thank my grandparents because without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Lastly, I would like to thank my church family and my friends who have been with me through thick and thin and have been supporting me since I was little.
