I Chose Cal because...of the overall atmosphere of the school and the vibe of the team.
My favorite thing about the Bay Area is...there is always something going on
When I'm upset, I like to...listen to music
I get mad when I miss this TV show: "What Not to Wear"
Cal is better than other schools because...it's Cal!
The one thing I learned from my parents is...to be grateful.
If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a dancer
Do you have any hidden talents? They wouldn't be hidden anymore if I exposed them.
What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? My long-time friends
Which words of phrases do you overuse? LOL
