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 was just so good.
