-What is your favorite city that you have visited?
I love New York City and I love Paris, France. Two amazing cities!
 
-What was your favorite subject in school?
I loved and still love history.

-What would you be if not a volleyball player?
I believe I'd still be an athlete. I love to compete. It's in my blood!

 

-Who inspired you to be a volleyball player?
My parents. They both are very athletic and we grew up watching them compete in various sports. They also were my first coaches in every sport I played - Baseball, soccer, volleyball.  I started playing volleyball at the age of 10 in the 5th grade. They knew I loved it from the very first moment and they supported my love of the game. I have them to thank for so much!

-What is the highlight of your career so far?
The two Olympic golds are pretty hard to beat!! They make me the most proud out of everything because they were won through a complete and total team effort--Misty and I, our coach, our trainers, our family. It felt so wonderful to win not only for ourselves, but for our support team as well.

-What advice do you have for an aspiring volleyball player?
My advice is to master the fundamentals. Just because you're tall doesn't mean cant pass and play defense. Just because you're shorter doesn't mean you can't hit and block. Learn to do it all, to become a complete player. If you do, you'll be an asset to every team.
