Questions for you:

I still sleep with my baby blanket…every night.

Other than dancing, I enjoy painting/drawing, hiking, swimming, yoga/pilates, snowboarding, fishing, horseback riding, scrap booking, and reading.

Which famous person would you like to have dinner with? Why?
Taylor Swift because she is my favorite artist. She seems like a very fun person and also very down to earth. I feel she has accomplished so much at such a young age! I think she is very talented and has so much drive and enthusiasm that I would love to feed off of.

Describe yourself…..or your personality.
I am a very “bubbly” and happy person. I always have a smile on my face and in my heart! I love children, so my inner child tends to come out in what ever I am doing. People tell me that I am a very positive person and I am inclined to constantly find the good in all situations.

Sum up yourself w/one word.

What are you looking forward to this Lakers season?
Being out in the community to help out in any way that I can……and also to meet the Laker fans in our community. It is an amazing thing when we get the opportunity to make connections and get to communicate with all the people who love the Lakers!

Why did you decide to audition to be a Laker Girl?
I have wanted to be a Laker Girl since I first knew what “Laker Girls” were! I decided to audition because I love the energy of the Lakers and I love to dance. Being on this team combine the two things that I am passionate about!

Vacationing at Yosemite National Park in the summers with my family.

Fondest memory as a Laker Girl?
My fondest memory as a Laker Girl would have to be when we won the 2009-2010 championship. Game 7 was the highlight!

Every aspect of being a part of this team makes it enjoyable and an overall amazing experience. Sitting on the court at our games and being that close to the excitement is amazing! But also, being out in the community to serve people and show them that we care is a very humbling, not to mention, a beneficial experience. In addition, I like being on a team where we have the opportunity to form friendships with the other girls on the team – that is so special to me.

I think that most people like the positive attitude that I aim to portray.
