How long have you competed in track and field?

I started in seventh grade, but didn't throw my freshman year of high school, so my high school career started my sophomore year.

What's your funniest Miami track experience?

In practice I always throw too far to the left, and I've almost killed a few people. There have been some pretty hilarious close-calls.

If you could spend one day with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?

Nicki Minaj. I just love her, her music and her personality. She's the greatest.

Who is your funniest teammate?

Andrew Vollet. He's always serious, but that's what makes so funny.

Do you have any pre-meet or pre-race rituals?

I always dance with my roommate in the hotel the night before meets. It keeps me loose.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, which teammate or coach would you want with you?

Briah Owens. She's my best friend so I have to go with her.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Paris. The shopping would be incredible, and I've always wanted to go.

If you could have a superpower, which would you choose?

Flight, not even a question. Walking around is such a hassle, and the stairs by Yager kill me on a daily basis.
