What is your biggest fear?
HEIGHTS! Don't go zip-lining with me!
What is your favorite memory from being on the Lady Cats dance team?
Before this year, it was traveling all the way across the world to represent the Bobcats and LadyCats in Manila, Philippines! However, most recently—the unveiling of the Hornets Logo at the game was the most unbelievable experience I have ever had in a game. The atmosphere was chilling and I have never been more proud to be on that court.

I have a cheer background, so I had all cheerleading uniforms and pom-poms of course!
