Advice You Would Give To A Freshman High School Athlete

For freshman athletes, I would tell them not to stress about practices or meets, just do your best! Your team will support you no matter what, so just put your all into it!

 

A Person(s) Who Had A Major Impact On My Athletic Career & Why Is…

While my parents have played a big part in my athletic career, I believe that Coach Calliari have made the most impact. She has always helped push me to work my hardest and put my all into it, even when I was having bad days and may not have wanted to. She also always made sure that I could balance my physical health along with my mental health, which is a very big deal to me, and I appreciate it greatly 🙂

 

Plans For After Graduation

After graduation, I hope to go to UW-Madison and either to study genetics or veterinary medicine.

 

Favorite High School Class

My favorite high school class was probably freshman year foundations, because I got to work with a lot of different art mediums!

 

Favorite High School Teacher & Why

Mrs. Calliari is my favorite teacher at school, because she pushes me to be and do my best, is patient with my learning, and I am not afraid to go to her if I have questions or need help with anything.

Definitely the National Parks in Utah. It was so much fun to hike them all and it was absolutely gorgeous!
