Getting into the Sport: Started playing handball at age 12… Outside Interests: Studying physical education… Odds and Ends: Favourite quote: “You’ve got to look at the girl next to you, look into her eyes. You are gonna see a girl who will sacrifice herself for the team because she knows when it comes down to it, you are gonna do the same for her. That’s a team, ladies, and either we heal now as a team or we will die as individuals. Give it all you got and have fun with it.”
