Behind the scenes

What is your favorite sports movie?: “Remember the Titans”



Who is your favorite artist?: Two Door Cinema Club



What is your favorite local restaurant?: I love Bottom Shelf Brewery. My go-to is the hot wings.



What is your dream car?: A minivan, actually. I grew up with three older sisters and a lot of cousins, and the van was always a fun place to mess around.



Who is your favorite professional athlete?: Diana Taurasi and Steve Nash



Do you have a dream vacation?: I’d want to go to London. I’d be interested in learning about the culture and trying a bunch of different types of food.



If you could have any superpower, what would you pick?: The ability to grow anything – almost like Mother Earth – to grow some trees and they’d sprout up.



What teacher has had the biggest impact on you?: Mr. Andrew Sweet, my freshman year Algebra 1 teacher. He no longer teaches at IHS, but he genuinely cared about his students, plus he was funny.



Who is your role model?: My mom because she’s helped me get to where I am right now as an athlete and as a person.
