Favorite Coach or Teacher: Mrs. Reed is my favorite teacher and coach. She helped me grow as a basketball player and a person, and I couldn’t be more thankful to have been a player and student of hers.

Favorite Memory as a Rebel Athlete: My favorite memory as a Rebel would have to be coming back from a major injury and getting to play the rest of my senior basketball season with amazing teammates, as well as getting the amazing opportunity to play at Bankers Life Fieldhouse with them.

Thoughts on Being an Athlete: Being an athlete has had such an amazing impact on my life. It has taught me many life lessons that I will carry with me throughout my life. It has taught me to overcome difficult hardships and showed me that I can always give more than I think. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to be a Randolph Southern Rebel throughout all of my sports careers.

Other Activities/Hobbies: I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I also love participating in 4-H and working with animals. Another thing I enjoy is painting and doing other crafty things.

Favorite Quote: “Of course it’s hard, it’s supposed to be hard. If it were easy everyone would do it. Hard is what makes it great. – A League of Their Own
