How did you get started in your soccer career?

I started my soccer career when I was about 5 years old. I don't exactly remember why, but I do know I would always skip my gymnastics practices to go to soccer stuff. So when I was about 7, I was able to quit gymnastics and play soccer year round.

If you could have dinner with one professional athlete (living or dead), who would it be and why?

If I could have dinner with one professional athlete it would be……Gareth Bale. He is just so gorgeous and I would love to hear his accent. He is also very good at soccer so that's a plus. 

What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is for sure crab legs. I could eat them at any hour of any day, however they are very expensive so I don't get to eat them too often. My more realistic choice of favorite food is angel hair pasta. So simple but so good.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received?

I have received a ton of advice from so many people. My best piece of advice changes depending on what I am going through in life at the time, so right now I would say it's from my sister. She said "you can do anything for a short amount of time" meaning that no matter how hard something is or how much you don't like it, you can do it because nothing is really forever. This is more regarding a full class load, internship and soccer. I have a lot on my plate but it is only until the end of the semester so I know I can handle it if I focus. 

What are some of your hobbies?

My hobbies aren't very exciting to be honest. I watch a lot of TV shows, and movies. I also like drawing here and there. I really enjoy practicing doing my makeup. It's something really random but it is one of my favorite things to do. You can create so many different looks, there is never enough time to try them all.
