What is it like to be a leader on the tennis team at Ashwaubenon High School? “Being a leader on the Ashwaubenon girls’ tennis team means a lot to me, as I was picked to be a captain by my teammates. Knowing that my teammates look up to me not only on the court, but also off the court is rewarding. This gives me motivation to have a good attitude and to always work hard because I know that it will influence my teammates to do the same.”

What is your most embarrassing moment ever in tennis? “I don’t particularly have an embarrassing moment in tennis, but I have felt embarrassed for someone else while playing tennis. Last year when we were playing Green Bay Preble, the girl was serving and when she hit the ball, she accidentally let go of her racket. She ended up throwing her racket all the way across the court and it hit the net. My doubles partner and I didn’t know what to do and we felt embarrassed for her because there were a lot of people watching.”

How many years have you been involved in tennis? “I have been playing tennis for four years.”

What is your most memorable moment? “My most memorable moment was last year during Homecoming week when the varsity team got our head coach’s house with balloons and toilet paper. I remember seeing his house light go on, so we all ran back into our cars and Jayme Kiser and I decided to go to our assistant coaches’ house. Little did we know was that she watched us get her house for two hours.”

What’s the hardest part about performing in a tennis meet? “Personally, the hardest part is keeping a good mentality, even when I am down in a game or set. I believe the most important part of tennis is to keep believing in yourself no matter the score, and sometimes when I am down, it is hard to do that. When I do believe in myself, I am able to make a comeback in a match and that is the most rewarding feeling.”

If you could be somebody for a day, who would it be? “I would be my tour guide from Paolo, Peru. He was so funny, knowledgeable, and kind. He also gets to adventure his country with new visitors every week as his job. He has the most relaxed but yet fun lifestyle.”

What is your sports routine before a big game starts? “Before a big game, I like to listen to music and think about what the opponent’s strengths are. I then think about what I am going to do to beat those strengths and win the match.”

What is one thing that other teammates or coaches don’t know about you? “I used to run in a ton of 5k runs. I ran in cross country and track before high school.”

Winning individual honors or a big team win? “I would much rather have a big team win. It is more rewarding to celebrate a win with your team rather than get an honor by yourself. A team spends a lot of time together though practices, matches and team bonding. Having a big team win from all of that time spent together makes everything worthwhile.”

What are your college aspirations? “I aspire to attend UW-Madison to double major in psychology and Spanish. After that, I would like to go to medical school.”

What would your dream job be once you graduate? “My dream job once I graduate is to be a physician’s assistant.”

What are your hobbies? “I like to take photos, go fishing and hang out with my friends.”

What is your favorite event ever attended? “My favorite event I have ever attended was a Post Malone concert this past June. It was during finals week, but I have no regrets because it was a ton of fun.”

What is your favorite type of music? “Hip-Hop/pop.”

What is your favorite thing to do on your phone? “I like to scroll through Twitter and use Snapchat.”

What three words describe you? “Outgoing, social, passionate.”

What is your favorite trip ever taken? “My favorite trip I have ever taken was this past spring break to Peru. The country was absolutely stunning with the architecture in Lima and the breathtaking views of Machu Picchu. I was also fortunate enough to learn about the Peruvian culture and meet some of the children.”

TV or Outdoor Activities? “Outdoor activities for sure. I love going to the beach in the summer and going for runs in the fall.”
