I love cooking food and the few people I share with seem to really enjoy it, so I guess that could be a hidden talent.

I used to have all sorts of rituals before games, but lately I have found myself more relaxed before games not focusing on as many rituals.
3-What's your favorite memory since competing for your institution?
The playoff push we had my second year and to play in a SUNYAC final

5-If you were stranded on an island, who would you want to be there with you, and why?
Superman and fly home
6-What is your spirit animal?
7-What's the best advice anyone has given you?
Not to give up
8-What are some things you do to prepare for a game mentally?
I used to get very worked up an anxious in the past and it would not work in my favor, so I try to stay as calm and relaxed as possible and have a little fun.
9-Do you have a motto you live by or say to yourself on occasion?
I have been trying to live with no regrets and to learn from my failures instead of being very hard on myself.
10-If you could pick one person in the entire world to be a spectator at all of your games who
would it be and why?
My dad, growing up and playing in Sweden my dad would drive and watch me play regardless of where. So having him in the stands again as a spectator would be awesome for the both of us I think.
