When not at camp: I go to the University of Tennessee where I'm studying sports management.

What's your favorite camp memory? It would probably be my first ever week as a camper. I was super homesick and wasn't having a great time, but I had a counselor who picked up on it and was awesome. He helped me feel more comfortable and then from there on out I kept coming back to camp for more and more weeks, and ended up loving it.

If you were stranded on a desert island (but had all of the essential survival items) what three things would you bring and why? I would bring a comfy beach chair for sure so that I can relax a little bit. The next thing I would bring would be a boogie board for some entertainment, and I'm assuming that this island has some solid waves to ride. Finally, I'd throw in a kayak for some more fun.

What was celebrity would you most want to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee? Kobe Bryant for sure. He was, and still is, my favorite basketball player ever.

What's your favorite camp meal? Definitely the original Frito Pie...it was just so good.
