1-Do you have a hidden or special talent?
I can dance a little bit...but wouldnt call it a hidden talent anyone who knows me knows I dance all the time .
2-Do you have any pre-competition rituals?
I try to stay away from the rituals because if you mess one thing up you completely mess up everything you have going so no I dont have a pre-game ritual.
3-What's your favorite memory since competing for your institution?
My favorite memory so far was when two of my teammates reached 1,000 points in back to back games and we won them both AT HOME. It was a great feeling to know they will always be apart of Potsdam history.
4-If you could have one song play every time you score/get a hit/win a race what would it be?
It would have to be GANG GANG by Sheck Wes and Travis Scott. Something about that song turns me up right into game mode.
5-If you were stranded on an island, who would you want to be there with you, and why?
It would be my sister Jennifer, she makes the best out of the worst situations so we would find a way to have all the fun in the world on an island.
6-What is your spirit animal?
My spirit animal is a lion. Not because it's most feared, but because there is no back down in a lion. He wont budge, if he wants something he's going to get it one way or another.
7-What's the best advice anyone has given you?
Stay true to yourself...and don't let anybody else ruin your day.
8-What are some things you do to prepare for a game mentally?
I usually eat an hour or so before game time then I just relax. Then I stretch and listen to a little bit of music. Other than that it's all a regular day.
9-Do you have a motto you live by or say to yourself on occasion?
I tell myself all the time it's not a race its a marathon...and also by any means necessary. Meaning it might not happen right now, but it will happen and I'll do exactly what it takes to be where I want to be.
10-If you could pick one person in the entire world to be a spectator at all of your games who would it be and why?
It would definitely be my big brother Zo. He is easily my hardest critic. It doesn't matter if I have 30 points he will tell me I could of had 40. He's always pushing me to be better because he knows I'm capable and I'm more than average. "I was born to do this" as he would say.
