If you weren’t playing college lacrosse, what sport would you play?

I’d like to play college basketball, but being 5-foot-3 didn’t help me there.

If there was a zombie apocalypse, who are three teammates you’d want with you?

Catie Corolla because she’s cool and collected. Izzy D’Antonio because she’s so much fun. And lastly, Chase Boyle because we’d be able to fight together.

How many pillows do you sleep with?

This might be controversial, but only one.

Be honest: Are you a morning person?

I am not a morning person. I probably never will be. But I can get up early if need be.

What’s your favorite hobby outside of sports?

I’m an avid moviegoer. I love going to the movie theater because of the entire experience. Me and my teammates usually go every Tuesday because it’s half off.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I’m semi-fluent in French. I love speaking in French and going to France and immersing myself. I’ve been there three times now.

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

Either Zendaya or Zoe Saldana.

Who is the most famous person in your phone?

My cousin is Christen Press, who used to be a member of the U.S. women’s national soccer team.

What’s your dream job?

I’ve really gotten into cooking recently, and to be a professional chef would be really cool.

OVERTIME (from NJIT goalie Liam Brown):

What’s your pregame breakfast?

It never really changes. An everything bagel with Taylor Ham, an egg fried hard and American cheese. If I’m feeling a little risky, I’ll add a tomato.

Pose a question for our next subject.

If you could only eat one thing for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
