DP: Where are you from and why did you choose DSU?

KM: "I'm from Hilo, Hawaii, but I'm a (junior college) transfer from Western Nebraska. I chose Dickinson State because I was able to duo-sport with track and volleyball and that was something I just couldn't pass up. Also the community is amazing and I love my coaches."

DP: What's it like being a two sport athlete?

KM: "Pretty much when it's track season, it's track season and when it's volleyball season, it's volleyball season."

DP: How long have you been involved in track?

KM: "I did it in high school, but I didn't do it at my (junior college). It's something I've always wanted to do in college, so that's why I couldn't pass up the opportunity."

DP: What do you enjoy most about track?

KM: "I love the environment of a track meet, it's just something special about it and I love being a lot of different people who do a lot of different things."

DP: If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would you choose?

KM: "I'd have to go with something from home. I think I'd have to choose poke, which is raw fish."

DP: What's the last show you binged on Netflix?

KM: "I've currently started rewatching Grey's Anatomy, but my favorite show ever is probably The Office."

DP: Who has been your biggest inspiration to succeed?

KM: "It's not that I don't look up to people but I've never really fixed on someone to idolize. I kind of just go by the quote, 'I inspire myself to inspire myself.'"
