Samantha Walker off the Pitch

I Chose Cal because...I have always been a Cal fan since I was born and I love their traditions.

Favorite thing about Bay Area you are never bored, there is always something going on.

Most interesting thing I did this summer was...go to Tahoe with my family.

When I'm upset, I like to...get my mind off it by running or talking to someone.

I get mad when I miss this TV show: "House"

The best moment in sports history was when...Brandi Chastain scored the winning penalty kick in the 1999 World Cup.

Cal is better than other schools because...the tradition here. It is a great academic and athletic school, you can not get any better!

Something I learned from my parents never give up no matter how hard times get.

Do you have any hidden talents? I can make my tongue into a clover

What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? The tranquility
