Q: How have you found the adjustment to college soccer?
A: It actually hasn’t been too bad. Coming from club to here I think the game is a lot quicker but other than that, it hasn’t been too bad of an adjustment.
Q: What have been some of the biggest challenges for you?
A: The biggest challenge is balancing everything. The first week was really hard, although the last couple of weeks were a lot harder because I had four tests, but having to balance all of that was really hard. Also, probably soccer wise being small has been kind of challenging especially playing midfield.
Q: On the field, how do you think the season has been going for you?
A: It’s been good. I would say, honestly I’ve been playing quicker as the games have progressed I’ve learned to just play a lot quicker and to just trust my teammates.
A: I think our team chemistry is awesome and especially in the midfield. We have our little triangle and we seem to really play the ball and pass around other teams. It seems to work.
Q: What’s it been like for you coming in with the big freshman class?
A: It was awesome, it’s like having our own little sorority. I’ve loved it. They’re like my second family. It’s nice to have a bunch of girls that are like family here when you’re away from home.
Q: What’s been the best moment so far in a Georgia jersey for you?
A: So far I think my best moment has been scoring my first collegiate goal against Jacksonville to win the game in overtime.
Q: How have you found working with the coaches on a day-to-day basis?
A: They’ve been awesome, really welcoming, really helpful, and they’re really good at constructive criticism and it works, it helps, and they’re awesome.
Q: What are your goals for the remainder of the season?
A: I think team wise our main goal right now is to win SEC’s and to win the SEC tournament and I think with this team we should definitely be in the mix and it realistically could happen.
