Freshman | Forward | Aurora, CO
What makes you love UCLA Women's Basketball?
I feel you get the total package here at UCLA. Whether it's a well rounded group of women, athletically and academically, I get the opportunity to live in it. Through that, I am hoping to experience great blessings.
What do you currently do in the community that you are proud of?
Every year for the past couple years, my family and I have been going to feed the homeless for Thanksgiving, and I am really proud of that because it puts things into perspective for me and makes me much more appreciative.
What single word best describes Coach Cori?
What is your most embarrassing basketball moment?
Missing wide open layups or tripping on another player's foot.
What is your nickname? How did you get it and who gave it to you?
Meeks: My high school coach, Coach Jada, would always call me it, and there's not a specific reason why.
Mich, because my best friend always calls me that.
Who are the role models in your life and why?
Parents because they've shaped me into who I am today.
Name something trendy or a fad that you took part of that was a mistake?
Printed leggings definitely.
What is a pre-game superstition you have?
I used to have to get my hair braided before every game and never changed my hairstyle for the whole season, but I think that will die down. Probably now listen to music, and pray.
If you were a superhero, what would your name be and what superpower would you have?
SupaaaaaaaaaMO and invisibility.
If you could have a dinner party with anyone (past or present), what three people would you invite?
Michael Jackson, Lebron James, and Barack Obama.
Is there a significance to your jersey number?
I was number 12 since I started playing basketball, but here at UCLA, it's retired, so I just switched it to 21 because it is the opposite.
