1.  Why did you decide to sign with Aquinas college?

Well I was originally signed to Saint Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, but ended up wanting to be closer to home and my fiancé. I made a very last minute choice to go to Aquinas because of their location, their environment, and of course their basketball program.

2. Describe the excitement you feel about becoming a college student-athlete?

I am very excited, but have known this was going to happen for years. When I was 14, right before 10th grade, I decided that I wanted to take my game to the next level and have been working on it more and more since then. I am most excited about having unlimited access to a gym and weight room, I really believe I have loads of potential.

3. What advice would you give to other athletes looking to get recruited?

Try your hardest in school, because having good grades will open up more doors for you to play at the next level. Also, just make smart life decisions. No coach wants someone who posts profanity on social networks or talks about drinking, partying, etc. Don’t be afraid to email a coach and tell them about yourself either, maybe they will see something in you.

4. Who has been the biggest influence in your sports career and why?

My 2 year high school coach Kevin White. He had 15 years of college coaching experience and definitely prepared me for the next level. He ran practice just like a college team and was the first coach I had who had us watch weekly film. I went to a workout at Marygrove a few weeks ago and since I had previously done every workout already with Coach White, I was very prepared. He also knew many college coaches at the level I was being recruited at, so he let them know about me personally.

5. What would you like to accomplish during your college sports career?

I want to win championships with my team. I want to increase my strength and athleticism. I hopefully will prepare myself to play in Europe for a few years, since I was born in Sweden. I would also like to graduate with good grades and maybe go to grad school later.
