Q: If you could choose a place to travel, what would be your first choice and why?

Q: What has been your most memorable game moment in your career?
A: “The first game I played here in Auburn, I got to start and when they announced my name, it was a wonderful feeling.”
Q: Have you ever taken advantage of having an identical twin sister?
A: “We do play tricks on people, try to wear our hair the same way, go to each other’s classes, pass the tests the other person was going to fail - - just joking. Actually, from first site, people think we are the exact same person until they get to know us.”
Q: What do you see yourself doing 10 years from now?
A: “Hopefully coaching or being a sports psychologist. I want to work with athletes.”
Q: Who is your idol in soccer and why?
A: “Charmaine Hooper- - she plays for the Canadian National team. She is a little player. People push her around and when she hits the ground, she gets back up and keeps playing. That influences me, being a little player myself.”
Q: How do you cheer yourself up after a loss?
A: “Right now, my sister is injured and to see the look on her face knowing she cannot play, makes me appreciate having an ability to play. Even if we lose, that cheers me up.”
Q: What is the most exciting place you have ever been?
A: “Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to travel when I was younger unless it was with my club team. So I would have to say, it was recently at Las Vegas with the team.”
Q: What do you do for fun in Auburn?
A: “I go to the movies. It is my favorite thing to do. I watch the same movie over and over again.”
Q: What is the most important thing in your life that you cannot live without?
A: “God and my Faith. You can lose everything in your life, just like that, but keeping faith and knowing that God will help me through it is something I cannot live without.”
Q: Do you have any superstitions?
A: “I do not have any superstitions at all. I have held the black cat, while walking under a ladder in my house, with my umbrella open.”
