What clubs or activities do you participate in outside of sports? I have been in the National Honor Society for 2 years.
Who were your role models growing up? Who inspires you today? Growing up my dad's work ethic inspired me. Today I look up to Javier Báez because of the way he plays and enjoys his time on the field.

What's something interesting that most people don't know about you? I eat and write left-handed but do everything else right-handed.
If you won an all-expenses-paid trip to anywhere in the world, where would you go? I don't need to explore the world when I have the world in my back yard.
If you had 2 hours every week to do anything you wanted, what would it be and why? I would work out with Javy Báez and learn how to get in a better routine for baseball.
