I Chose Cal because...it's close to my family.
My favorite thing about Berkeley is...that my mom is just a few minutes away.
The most interesting thing I did this summer was...move in with Emily Shibata and Megan Jesolva during preseason training.
When I'm upset, I like to...work out then eat ice cream.
Cal is better than other schools because...it's Cal!
The one thing I learned from my parents is...to never give up, no matter what.
If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a violinist.
What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? I'm from Berkeley - ha!
