Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?

I chose to attend Vanderbilt because it is one of the best academic institutions in the country and because the SEC is the most competitive conference.

What are your career goals?

I want to play overseas for a couple of years and then become a pharmacist.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

You have to be dedicated to both your studies and your sport, but you also just have to have fun with everything.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

I am always in contact with my professor and I organize what I believe to be my priorities..

What is your ritual before taking a test?

I cram and pray (which is probably not good, but it works).

What is your favorite quote?

“Perspective is the key. The lock is life. If you never figure it out, you’ll never get it right.” – Anonymous
