What do you like most about your sport: I love how volleyball is so strategic and fast. Also, seeing my teammates after we earn a point lifts everyone’s spirits up.
How long have you been playing your sport and how did you get started: Six years. I played just about every sport; soccer, basketball, softball, track and cross country. My mom told me about all her successes in volleyball and right when she taught me how to play, I wanted to continue to get better.
Pregame ritual: Before games, we all do each other’s hair and play a game called “jig-a-lo.”

If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be and why: I think it would be cool to be a model for a day.
Something most people don’t know about you: I am Korean and native American.
How would you spend $1 million: I would buy Apple Valley High School a new gym. No, but I would pay off all my family’s houses.
