What will you major in/study? “I plan to major in either nursing or forensics.”
Why did you choose Fresno State? “I chose Fresno because they offer the programs I am interested in, I LOVE the team and have a handful of teammates from WCS (West Coast Starz) going, and my family is closer than they would have been if I had choose any other schools I was looking at.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for this season? “I was sorta bummed going into the season just because I knew we graduated all but one of our defensive field players, but we have a strong freshman class so I am very excited! We are already a lot closer than in years past, so I think that will work in our favor.”
Thank Yous: “I want to thank all of my wonderful coaches who helped me become what I am today and my parents for paying for everything because I know it gets really expensive.”
