Favorite Class? Contemporary Issues with Mr.Saffield.

Twitter or Facebook, and why? Facebook because I don't have Twitter.

Worst habit? Biting my fingernails when I'm nervous.

Favorite Quote(s)? "I wouldn't say anything is impossible. I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and put the work and time into it."- Michael Phelps

What is your cell phone ring tone? My phone is always on vibrate.

How many texts do you send/receive per month? Too many to count.

What is your favorite hobby in your spare time? Running and hanging out with my friends.

Favorite memory in your sport, and why? Making the state my freshman year. It was one of the best feelings knowing my hard work paid off.

What's something no one would believe about you? Everyone knows everything about me.

Favorite Athlete, and why? Michael Phelps, because he is an outstanding athlete and trains harder than anyone and has proven that you can do what you set your mind to.

Best advice you've ever received? To shoot for whatever I want and go for my goals because you are the only one who can achieve them.

Who do you admire most, and why? There are two people I admire. My coach Bobbi Jo because she dedicates her life everyday to our swimming. She supports me and encourages me to do the best I can do. She always knows the right thing to say, and she believes in me. My "Y" coach Rick Reidel because he has been there for me at about every swim meet and when I have a bad swim he always knows the right thing to say to make me feel better. He is always there for me and when I have doubts in myself and dont believe in myself I know he always does. He's not just my coach but I consider him part of my family.

What's your favorite part of your sport? Being able to do what I love and being able to swim with my best friends and be part of a team. No matter if you do bad or good they are always there to pick you up and make you feel better.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Out of college and working in veterinary medicine or something in the medical field.
