Favorite Pastime: Giving animals voices/commentating on what they are thinking
Why did you choose IWU VB: The team and the coaches sold me. I really was impressed with the competitive but positive spirit on the court and the closeness of the girls off the court.
Favorite Verse: 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever."
