What college or professional athlete inspires you and why?

Tom Brady — just because he's the greatest at what he does.

What is one of your most memorable moments as an athlete?

I'd say it was probably during basketball when my coach told me I made all-district (in 2021).

What are your plans after graduation?

I plan to move down to Kentucky to go to college for civil engineering at the University of Kentucky. I've always been pretty decent in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) majors. Plus, a lot of my family are engineers, so I'd like to keep that going.


Describe your dream vacation:

I'd probably go to Tokyo. I'd just like to try all the foods and see all the attractions.
