Speed Demon:
It took all but one season for junior Jamia Reid to run her way into the record books in steals. With her holding down the No. 1 spot in the Cal record books, it is no surprise that she excelled on the track as well. During her freshman year of high school, Reid was a key member of the Kennedy Park High School's 400-yard relay team that set a state record.

McDonald's for Me:
While playing in Japan with the U.S. Futures National Team, Jamia Reid did not particularly enjoy the Japanese fare Instead, the Buena Park, Calif., native ate at McDonalds, a restaurant she does not normally frequent.

All in the Family:
As if their similar-sounding names and comparable looks weren't enough, Jamia Reid and Elia Reid are identical twins.

Why I Have My Number:
"It was between three different numbers that I could possibly want. I wanted 4 originally, but that was already taken. Then I was thinking maybe 2 or 7, but I didn't like those enough. So since there were three numbers, I decided to be 3. It turns out a lot of my friends have this number."

My Walk-Up Songs Are:
""Mirror" by Wayne because it reminds me to be me and no matter what to never give up on myself. "Do My Thing" by Hwood because I really liked the beat of this song and the lyrics say exactly what I am trying to do - do my thing. You have to be yourself and do what works for you. You never have to do too much."
