Why did you choose to go to Bethany? I chose to go to Bethany because of the positive atmosphere and the inclusiveness of the campus. I also like the smaller campus because I feel that I am a pretty social person and love being able to form relationships with different people around campus.

What has been your favorite memory from college? My favorite memory from college can’t be pinpointed into one specific time, but overall just the relationships I’ve made and the places I’ve traveled to; from basketball games to Harlaxton.

What drives you as an athlete? My drive comes from the experience of injuring my knee and overcoming that hardship. It ignited a passion that left me striving to become a better athlete and the opportunity to get on the court again. You never know when your last play will be, so I always try my hardest in the moments I have.

What is a talent outside of your sport that you possess? I am a functional potter, which means I can make teapots, bowls, cups, plates, and pretty much anything else out of clay. I throw it on the potter’s wheel.

What is something very few people know about you? I can cross my left eye and keep my right eye looking straight. It’s a little creepy, but it’s something I’ve mastered.
