    If you could trade places with anyone for a day, who would it be and why? President Bush so I can end the war, lower gas prices, and set the economy back to the way President Clinton had it.

    Name three people, (dead or alive) that you would like to have dinner with: Martin Luther King Jr., Maya Anglou , Tu-Pac

    Are there any superstitions before competing? No Superstitions, just allow God to help me perform to the best of my abilities

    What is your major and why? Social Work, I want to give underprivileged children a chance to see what life is like outside of their broken down neighborhoods. I want to give them an opportunity to grow and enhance their strengths and work on their weakness that would give them a chance to get away from the dead-end lifestyle they have now. I came from the same area as them and I want them to know that they can become successful with a little guidance.

    Something the average person doesn't know about me: I am a computer geek! I know how to fix just about any computer problem anyone has.

    The best things about IU track and field is...the coaching staff, the personalities of other athletes, traveling, competing against top ranked opponents, and the goals that we can achieve together by doing our individual part.

    My goals for the 2006 season are...stay academically successful, stay healthy, and WIN everything that I compete in.
