 “My headphones to listen to music and watch Netflix.”

3. I’m currently binge watching this …

“I have been watching Peaky Blinders, but I have finished it. I am looking for another show if you have any suggestions.”

4. Something that’s on my bucket list …

“To be able to see my younger brother grow up. To be able to help my brother more as he is growing up and to spend time with him. That is what I want the most.”

5. My favorite meal is …

“Roast, Uruguayan meat.”

6. On the significance behind my number …

“Before arriving, I took a look at the roster and saw that that the number was open because a player who was here who had it, had left. I only liked the number because my favorite number was taken, so I chose my number only because I liked it, rather than significance.”

7. The best piece of life advice I have ever received …

8. My daily routine …

10. My family is excited for my new journey because …

“They are excited, but I feel the same as my family, we are all happy but we miss each other very much. I think it’s been a little hard on my mother. My brother had already left to live in Canada, and now I have been away for a month or two here in the United States. I know it’s been hard for her but she is happy and excited for me.”
