  • What other sports do you participate in? Swimming, Track & Field and Softball
  • What do you hope to accomplish while competing at the National Games? Lots of fun, that’s rule number one! A chance to meet other athletes, experience what it’s like to travel, train and compete with others and learn from them.
  • Describe your most memorable sports accomplishment with Special Olympics. Trying skiing for the first and getting better – I have a trophy for most improved skier that I share with my kid brother!
  • What other hobbies or activities do you do? I play video games, read, swim and run.
  • Who is your hero? And why? My Dad. He always tries to teach me to see the other side – and he teaches me gently how things need to be approached so things are fair and right. He practices patience and teaches me to be calm.
