HOW MANY AUG’S HAVE YOU PLAYED (INCLUDING 2015): 2015 will be my first AUG

WHEN DID YOU START PLAYING? When I was 15 years old

WHAT GOT YOU STARTED PLAYING? I had always played soccer at home with my brothers and didn’t join a team until my high school soccer coach told me I had potential and needed to be playing for a club.


WOULD YOU PREFER TO BE THE UNDERDOG OR THE FAVOURITE? Underdog because no one expects you to win, and when you do, it’s the best feeling!

BEFORE A GAME I ALWAYS...listen to R&B music

WHEN I’M NOT AT UNI, COMPETING OR TRAINING I AM... spending time with friends and trying to eat at as many different restaurants as possible

FUN FACT: I can speak 4 languages and can rap all the words to lose yourself and mockingbird by Eminem
