I Chose Cal because...it's the best school in the universe!
My favorite thing about Berkeley is...the weather and my best friend Emily Shibata.
Something on my iPod that might surprise you is...Mozart
The most interesting thing I did this summer was...go to England with the U.S. Under-23 national team.
When I'm upset, I like to...run.
I get mad when I miss this TV show: "Desperate Housewives"
The best moment in sports history was when...Michael Phelps winning eight medals at the Olympics.
Cal is better than other schools because...we're way cooler and have more fun.
Something thing I learned from my parents is...work hard and do all you can do. The rest is out of my control.
If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a swimmer. Even though I'm not a strong swimmer I love the water.
Do you have any hidden talents? I wish
What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? My family
