Nickname(s): Lamb, Am, Amber, Ambo Rambo and Biceps

My favorite cold cereal: Not really a big fan of cereal, but probably anything with "honey" in the name (honey nut cheerios, honey bunches of oats, etc.)

How I will spend my off-season: Going to school, working the soccer camps, and living it up!!!

One place I would like to visit: Africa--and go on a safari

My favorite scripture: Alma 26:8, 11-12

My advice to youngsters: "Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you CAN do." Make the most out of what you're given and have fun doing it!!!

Why I chose to play soccer over other sports: There's more opportunity to knock some girls to the ground...it's especially fun when they are bigger than you are!

If I had to give up all of my possessions except one, what is the one thing I would keep and why: My scriptures because I always get comfort from reading them and I have a lot of quotes and thoughts that are important to me written in them.

What do I want to be doing 20 years from now: I want to be a mom kicking the ball around at the park with my kids.

How I selected my jersey number: Freshman year I actually got stuck with #13 but lucked out when a teammate wanted to trade, so now I'm #2

My favorite activity or hobby away from soccer: Hmmm...this is a hard one. I'd have to say either reading, doing art projects, or just hanging out with good friends

The best book I've ever read: There are too many good ones to pick just one...

Favorite movie: Same as with the books, but I love Princess Bride and Phantom of the Opera

My most memorable athletic achievement or moment: Making it to the Elite Eight my freshman year

What I would like to do sometime in my life: Help with a humanitarian aid relief project in either Africa or South America

One rule I'd change in college soccer: Not so picky on some of the fouls

If I were on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," the person I'd call for my lifeline is: My mom

Best advice I've ever received: "Dare to dream, then do what it takes to make your dream happen."

If I could play another sport, it would be: Basketball

Most embarrassing moment as a player: I haven't really had any in games, but there have been some at practices...we'll just leave it at that...
