Mastering the mental game.
Q: Who would you play in a movie about your life?
I would want maybe Cameron Diaz just because all my life, many referred my sisters and I to her.
Q: What is something most people don’t know about you? Any hidden talents?
I am a really shy and a sensitive person on the inside. I consider see myself as a nerd who works really hard for what she wants. I trick someone’s brain thinking I know what they’re going to tell me because my brain can recap someone’s lips and sound faster than they say it, so I am able to say it at the same time as that person.

How heavy my clubs are and this lucky master marker I carry around.
