What it means to represent the United States: It is an honor to get the opportunity to represent and wear USA across my chest while playing the sport I love. It is honestly a dream come true.
Who has been your biggest supporter: My parents and little sister have been there every step of the way throughout my entire softball career.  If it wasn't for them driving me to all those 8 a.m. games and long practices I wouldn't have been able to get anywhere.
