Claim to fame: I literally smile through everything even when playing soccer

Bet you didn’t know: I’m left-handed in everything accept for writing, and I’m right-footed, also I’m a really good artist

Toughest opponent/why: It would have to be a team named BYRC. For club, we’ve played them twice and it’s been close both times and they’re a team that brings out the best play

Favorite movie: Either Get Out or Moana; I love Disney movies

Favorite TV show: Spongebob

Favorite musical artist/song: At the moment it is SZA along with her song called “The Weekend”

Favorite smell: Gasoline

Favorite home-cooked meal: Chicken spaghetti and mashed potato casserole

Game-day ritual: Listen to Cardi B and eat Skittles.

Person who could play you in a movie /why: It could be Simone Biles. Around school people say that I look like her and we’re both pretty short

Words you live by: I know I can

You can’t live without: My dog or my friends and family

In 10 years you’ll be: Somewhere playing soccer. I’ll have a boyfriend and a really nice house.

Best thing about soccer: Anyone can play and be good at it if you just apply yourself. You can be any height or size, different skill levels so anyone can enjoy it. It’s also really fun with the ball at your feet. To me it’s another burst of energy.

Worst thing about soccer: There are people who love to flop and exaggerate instead of the just playing a good hard game

Vegetable I just won’t eat: Peas.

Favorite junk food: Oreos and fruit snacks

Favorite school subject: This year would have to be mathematics because algebra makes more sense than geometry
