Who on this team are you most excited to play with?
Handling with Stephanie [Phillips] is really fun, so I’m excited to do that a lot more. I think Bailey [Shigley] too. Her cuts are really well timed, and she’s so good at them that I think it’s going to be really fun to worth with her on that. And Ella [Juengst] also. We’ve had some good connections.
Team you’re most excited to see this week: Japan
Non-ultimate hobbies? Not really. It’s really just been school and ultimate for the last two years.
Favorite show to binge on Netflix: I really only watch Japanese TV shows!
Favorite food: I like any kind of Japanese food. Sushi would probably be my favorite. I also really like strawberries.
Favorite place you’ve been: Canada. I went to Toronto two years ago and really liked it.
1. I’m fluent in Japanese.
2. I’m deathly afraid of submarines.
