Favorite ISU memory or tradition: Going to my first Iowa State vs Iowa Men's basketball game back in 2017 and leaving Hilton singing Sweet Caroline. I also loved rushing the field during the 2017 Homecoming TCU vs ISU game. I'm a huge sports fan and love going to as many Cyclone events as possible!
