Why BYU-Hawaii: "I am part Tahitian and it offers me a great opportunity to further my education, learn about my ancestors and their culture and play collegiate softball."

Why Softball?: "My best friend is a pitch at the University of Hawaii and when we were about 9 she asked me to come catch for her at her pitching practice. I played soccer and wasn't totally attached to the sport and decided to switch to softball full time the next year, as a catcher."

Most influential person in your career: "My dad is the person that has been most influential throughout my career. He was my soccer coach when I played and was able to coach my select team for softball years later. He is always willing to help me get better and pushes me to be the best I can be. Talking to him after games is always the best."
