Getting to Know Megan
Favorite Food: Spaghetti, or any type of Italian.
Favorite Class Subject: My Engineering classes.
Favorite Book: "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krakauer and "Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini.
Favorite TV Show: Grey's Anatomy.
Favorite Movie: Remember the Titans.
Person in history you'd most like to meet and why: Rosa Parks because she brought to life the true meaning to "Girl Power!"
Something not many people know about you: I have worn a uniform to school since Kindergarten.
Advice to young people: Don't take things too seriously! If you do, you'll spend too much time worrying about things that don't really matter. Also, live for the future. Satisfying immediate desires will only get you so far. Plus, living with regrets would be horrible.
What I like most about AFA women's soccer is: The team's determination. No matter the situation, we never give up or stop working hard.
Who's had the biggest influence on your sports career and/or life and why: My Dad. Not only did he get me interested in soccer, he also supported every decision I made along the way.
Most noteworthy thing(s) about your hometown: Tom Burnett, one of the heroes from the flight that crashed into the open field on 9/11, was from my city. Also, Tiffany Roberts grew up down the street from me. She was on the Women's National Soccer Team for a while.
Why is soccer your sport?: All the other sports were too easy!! =) Just kidding. Soccer is my sport because it challenges me both physically and mentally, and the rewards are well worth the work. Also, I love the soccer atmosphere....everyone has to work hard for their teammates or nothing will get done. Plus, I kind of have a short temper and the space on the soccer field is a little more forgiving than a cramped basketball court!
Best personal moment in soccer: Either making the Varsity team my freshman year of High School (because they had an amazing reputation), or winning the NCS (North Coast Section) Championship during that same year.
What do you enjoy doing away from soccer?: Snow boarding, water skiing, line dancing, watching movies, bowling, or just hanging out with my friends.
Favorite Athlete and why? Lance Armstrong because he had to overcome so much in order to get to where he is today.
Favorite non-traditional sporting event to watch on TV? Probably bowling. Those people are amazing at what they do!
Career/Life aspirations after school: I want to get a Masters in Biomechanical Engineering while serving my 5 year commitment, and then work on the civilian side building and testing prosthetics.
