Pets: Two golden doodles, Daisy Mae and Gracie Lou
Dream job: Being a physical therapist

What it means to represent the United States: This is a huge honor and responsibility for me and I hope to make everyone and my country proud.
Why she chose to attend UCLA: UCLA was always my first choice but I took the time to visit other college campuses that were interested in having me as a part of their program like Oklahoma, Washington, Missouri and others.  I found that, for me, UCLA offered me the opportunity that would give me the best chance for success, competition and my future.  I found the history and tradition of UCLA made me feel I was going to be part of something very special.
What inspires her: My brothers have always been an inspiration to me.  My oldest brother Josh is one of my heroes not only because of what a strong person he is, but for what he has overcome in his life.  Josh has Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita which limits him physically, but he has surpassed anything I would have believed possible in his life - he continues to prove the people who said he "couldn't" - wrong.
