Philosophy on Life
I live by what my Dad always told me when I was little, "Never grow up unless you have to." I never try to take myself too seriously. Life is way too short not to have fun and enjoy every moment.

Best Part About Arizona
That's the wonderful thing about Arizona. It is such an important time in all our lives, and everybody makes the best of it. The whole team is extremely supportive. Everybody looks out for each other and helps to make each person the best they can be. I'm so excited to watch the team become more and more like a family as the season progresses.

Favorite Place to Swim
I would love to swim anywhere where the water is so clear you can see everything underneath the water.

Why Arizona?
Arizona stood out to me because of how close the team is. Being so far from home, it's easy to be homesick. There is rarely a day, however, when you don't see a teammate. There aren't any lines between classes, so upperclassmen are more than happy to take the freshmen grocery shopping or just take us out when we need a break from the dorms.
