The best thing I did this summer was: I helped with a tennis camp, playing and teaching it
One thing people would be surprised to know about me: I can be really outgoing even though I'm shy and not very talkative at first, I can be once you get to know me.
What I like most about Siena tennis: The determination on the team. Every girl helps the team, but helps themselves at the same time, and I absolutely love the atmosphere and the family feel within the team.
What I like most about Siena College: Everything! I like the size, the atmosphere and the way everyone carries themselves. The students really do want to be there and that brings out the best in Siena.
What I like most about Coach Christodoulou: He's very open and down-to-earth, and he's made me feel a part of the team since the day I met him. I really like the way he introduced me to the team and his enthusiasm for tennis.
If I could be on a reality TV show, it would be: I would be on the Amazing Race with my brother because we've always talked about going on the show together and winning the race
If I didn't play tennis, I would: Play soccer
