Top Three’s

What are the Top 3 things on your bucket list? Travel to all 50 states, learn to surf well, get my first kiss (smh)

What are the Top 3 things about playing a D1 Sport? Learn to survive off minimal sleep, accept that some days you'll perform better than others, and constantly setting goals and pushing yourself to be better.  

What are the Top 3 reasons to go to an out of state school? Get to experience an entirely different way of life, putting yourself out of your comfort zone and meeting all new friends, has taught me to be very independent and appreciate the time I have when I’m home.

What are the Top 3 pictures to capture at a party/event? Always try to mix in a nice pic with the girls obviously, a snap of somebody doing something their mother wouldn't be proud of, pose with something in somebody's house or appt that is just absolutely absurd to own.


--If you need a semi-professional picture taken at a party, a good laugh, or just to look at someone easy on the eyes- Grace is your girl. Watch her running wicked fast at an indoor track meet starting soon! Thanks Grace XO--
