What college did you attend before SVC? Why’d you choose to transfer to SVC instead? 

I'm from Indian River State College, in Fort Pierce, Florida. I chose SVC because I wanted to get out of Florida and see a new side of the country. It was pretty cool seeing my first snow, too!

You’ve had a pretty successful basketball season thus far! How long have you been playing basketball? (Good luck in the Championship!)

If you could take away one form of advice from this season, what would it be? 

One thing I could take away from this season...hmm... stay positive, lots of ups and downs in the season but stay persistent and it all works out for the better good. 

Since you’re on the market, what do you look for in a significant other? 

Honesty is a big for me, and being able to completely trust the person. Someone that I just click with, everything comes natural nothing forced, that's what I would want. Also, someone who is outgoing, smart, challenges me, and most importantly helps me grow as a person. 

 

Are there certain standards the girl you chose to date must have? If so, do you mind to share some? 

Honestly, I’m really detail oriented takes a lot for me to date. One standard I guess would be just carry yourself in a way that is respectful and so that people remember you in a positive way. 

What is an interesting fact about you? 

I have one kidney! 

 

Do you have any siblings? If so, how many? 

I have three siblings, two brothers, one baby sister.

Who is your role model in life and why? 

It would have to be my mom, she’s just the strongest person I know and always gives me timely advice when I need it.
