What made you come to Trinity?
I had no idea what or where Trinity University was until I took a college quiz for a grade in one of my classes. I struggled deciding my top colleges and was growing extremely frustrated, that is, until a quiz matched me at a 100% with Trinity. Curious about it, I did more research, discovered they had a great volleyball program, went on a visit, and then met with coach Jenkins. What amazes me is how I fell in love with the campus from the start, and I could not think of a single thing not to like. The rest is history!

What excited you the most about the upcoming season?
What excites me most about the upcoming season is that I have been itching to play libero for the last coupes of years, and I am finally getting that opportunity. I also haven’t talked to the whole team very much, but from what little I have come to know, I can tell they are an amazing group of gals!

How many siblings do you have?
I have one little sister, Hanna, who is 15 years old and a freshman in high school. She also shares the same passion for volleyball I do.

What are some of the things you and your family enjoy doing together?
My family and I love going to the movies when in El Paso (frankly there’s not much else to do). But if we are not home, I love that we are more than likely traveling by car either to see family, play volleyball, or vacation together.

What's your earliest memory playing volleyball?
I was at a catholic school in the fifth grade, and my crisis that year was that I was sick of always being the last pick when we playing volleyball in PE. I was familiar with gymnastics, so luckily the combination of determination and natural athleticism allowed me to pick up the basics pretty fast. I actually ended up surpassing the girls in my grade and decided to pursue competitive volleyball, and I am so glad I did!

What are some of your other hobbies?
Other hobbies of mine include: drawing, painting, creative writing, watching new movies and TV shows, and obsessing over Marvel.

What's your favorite memory playing volleyball?
My favorite memory playing volleyball was at the 2015 SURVA National bid qualifier. I had a difficult year prior to that season, and many of my bullies and doubters were in the crowd that day. I worked so hard to prove myself, and I did exactly that when I scored the winning point to earn us a a bid to Nationals.
