When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was growing up I wanted to drive the ice cream truck

What was the last book you read?

The last book I read was “Looking for Alaska” by John Green.

What is your favourite Lancer moment?

My favourite Lancer moment so far was winning the CIS Championship in my first year, the 2012/13 season. Even though we played in Saskatchewan, there was a huge amount of support from all the fans back home. Beating Regina on their home court was special and hearing about all the love from Windsor made me so proud to be a member of the Lancer family.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

My greatest accomplishment was coming back from tearing my ACL in grade 12 to play for the Lancers.

Who is your hero and why?

My heroes are my parents. They have always been there for me and supported me in all my decisions. I have learned everything from them and I would not be where I am today without them.

What does being a Lancer mean to you?

Being a Lancer means representing the city of Windsor on a provincial and national level. I am honoured to be able to represent the city and the University, which always motivates me to work harder and give 100 percent effort every day.
