1. What is your proudest athletic moment? When I made varsity my freshmen year; I was completely surprised.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? A sandwich, fruit snacks, and vitamin water.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? “Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC. I was a huge fan as a kid.

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? I was really inspired as a kid by Angel McCoughtry. She was the first University of Louisville women’s basketball player to really get recognition for her hard work and determination. Then she went into the WNBA and received rookie of the year. I always loved watching her play and witnessing her lead her team.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? “All your strength, all your power, all your love. Everything you've got. Right now!” –Duke, Rocky IV

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? I know that I cannot control everything, and so I have to rely on God to keep me safe, which I feel is very similar to teams. I cannot control every aspect of the game, so I know to trust my teammates, to know that they will be there to support me when I need it and to be there for them when they need support as well.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Mulan; it was the first movie I ever saw in a theatre.

8. All time favorite board game? The game of Life.

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? iPhone, and my favorite app is StudyBlue, it’s for flashcards. It is so helpful for school.

10. What is your favorite local (non chain) restaurant? Gasthaus German Restaurant.

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? Keeping Up with the Kardashians; they just have so much drama.

12. What is your greatest fear? Deep Sea Scuba Diving

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? My sense of humor; I can make people laugh without even trying.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Lean Cuisine Four Cheese Pizza

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? My favorite hour is between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. because that is when I get to lay in bed and watch the news. It is incredibly relaxing.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? I don’t actually have a nickname. Pretty much anything you can rhyme with Hannah and put at the end of my name can be a nickname.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Coaching volleyball at St. Stephen Martyr with my Dad. I get to give back to kids from my old school and still have fun because it involves volleyball.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I am actually pretty good at photography and photoshop; portraits are my favorite type of photography.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would choose to go backward because I have always loved history, I would love to go back and witness different time periods and just see how people lived before us.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask Alice Paul what it was like to fight for and win the right to vote for women.
