What was the first sport you ever played?
Flag football.
What is your favorite sports memory?
Winning my first championship. We were a new team that had only been playing together for one season, so we had to work twice as hard, and it paid off. We ended up not only winning the championship but going undefeated during the regular season as well.
How did you hear about women’s football?
I’ve been playing football for a few years in various leagues, and some of the girls I’ve played with used to talk about it all the time.
Why do you want to play women’s football?
I love the game, and I love being able to compete and excel in a game that is predominantly deemed a “man’s sport.”
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
It means everything! I’ve been following the organization for the last few years, so to finally be a part of the team is an amazing feeling.
