What’s the best part about playing volleyball at Oak Forest?
Meeting people and making friends.
How do you feel about being a libero?
It’s definitely not a star position. I’m not a setter or a hitter, so I don’t exactly get recognized as much. But I understand that it’s part of my position.
What’s it like playing for coach (Amanda) Brown?
I love it. I was scared of her at the beginning because of her stern voice, but once I started to really know her every stern word that came out just affected me in a very positive way.
Do you like rowdy crowds?
Yes! It makes me 10 times better than I normally am.
What’s your dream vacation spot?
I’d really like to go to Ireland and see the landscape. That’s where my heritage comes from.
What’s the neatest present you’ve ever received?
For Christmas, a stereo for my car.
What’s the first thing you look for in somebody you just met?
Definitely personality. If they can make me laugh, I’m set. I’ll like them forever.
Ten years from now, what’s the first funny story you’ll tell about Brown?
Last year we TP’d her house for Senior Night, We thought she was going to be really mad, but she thought it was funny.
Are you a big fan of the state champion softball program at Oak Forest?
I cheer on my school. I don’t look for (scores) in the newspaper, but I go to the games. I support them.
What movie can you watch over and over?
I definitely watch “Harry Potter 3” over and over again. I know every single line. And I know the whole soundtrack by heart. And I watch the “Harry Potter” parts 1 and 2 over and over. It’s part of my life. I’ll be buried with them — if I die.
How long does it take to get ready for school in the morning?
Oooooooh, that depends. If I’m trying to look nice, maybe an hour and a half. If I’m scumming it, I’ll wear sweat pants and it takes about 20 minutes.
You’re in charge of providing treats for the team. What do you bring?
I’d definitely bring Cheez-Its for sure, and we’d have a bunch of brownies and cookies.
