What did you do this summer?... This summer Hannah took a physics class, worked in UST's Biology department, and volunteered at the Children's Hospital in the Child Life Zone.  

What have you enjoyed most about UST?... I have also had many new experiences while living in a city rather than the more rural setting I grew up in, which has been fun.

What do you enjoy most about your teammates or the basketball program?... Personally, I love how committed everyone is to their own improvement but also to making our teammates better.  I like the level of commitment we have for the standards we have set, but we also can have fun and enjoy time our time together.

What is a professional development club you participate in outside of basketball? ... I am involved in the Pre-Health Professions Club (with a bunch of other USTWBB players) which is really helpful for students going into anything health related. Personally I'm going into chiropractic medicine and have gotten some great advice on classes and career opportunities.

What is your favorite meal?... STEAK!!

What is career ambition or dream job?...To become a chiropractor and have my own clinic that will treat all my retired basketball Friends! 

Who inspires you or who is your role model? Why? ...  Elena Delle Donne mostly because she's a great basketball player, is a great role model for how she deals with her health problems and cares for her sister, is really pretty, follows her passions, and makes super cool tables (check out her instagram).
