My favorite gymnastics memory is when I found out April Baker was committed to Rutgers and she flew to South Carolina to meet me for the first time.
My favorite gymnastics event to compete on is beam because it's a challenge to stay calm and focused on four inches.
I committed to Rutgers over other schools because I loved the coaches and the girls.
When I was little I always wanted to work at an ice cream parlor.
After graduation I hope to get my life together, become super jacked, and be a collegiate strength coach.
The most influential person in my life is my daddy.
My favorite midnight snack is anything in the fridge that I'm not supposed to eat.
An artist no one would believe I have on my iPod is James Taylor.
If I could spend a day with anyone in history, it would be Jesus.
If you walked into my bedroom, the first thing you would notice is how messy it is.
If I could eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be pizza and ice cream.
The best place at Rutgers is Brother Jimmy's.
A pre-meet ritual of mine is to cry to my mom about how nervous I am.
I hate to admit it, but I love April’s hair bun on the top of her head.
If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be anywhere south of the Mason-Dickson line.
If I could play any other sport at RU, it would be with no doubt, football!
My goals for the 2014 season are to WIN!
