FullertonTitans.com: If you could meet any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

 

Alyssa: The three people that I would like to meet are Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Bocanegra, and Mia Hamm.

Lastly, Mia Hamm, because she is an awesome competitor and I modeled my style of play after her competitive side.

 

FullertonTitans.com: What should Cal State Fullerton fans know about you?


Alyssa: Cal State Fullerton Fans should know that every game I am going to give it my all; 110 percent. Fans should know that becoming a Titan has been my dream, and I will never let them down. Finally, fans should know that Cal State Fullerton fans are the best!

FullertonTitans.com: If you could attend any sporting event in the world, what would it be and why?
