Q: How would you solve the problem that the falling oil prices has on the economy?
A: So much of the economy is run off the oil industry and so many people have jobs that are connected to it, making this a hard question. on the one hand it is super good for the average persons pocket, but its bad for the business. It would be hard, but if you could change the focus that the economy from oil to other natural resources and move the jobs that people have to more sustainable options the problem could be solved. But that is easy to say and pretty much impossible to do.
Q: As a vegetarian, what would prize or reward would be required for you to take a bite of chicken?
A: A fully funded mogul team would be the reward needed for me to take a bite of chicken, or a life time supply of ice cream.
Q: Which one of your talents would you like to explore after your skiing career?
A: I really want to be a chef in a big fancy restaurant so I can be artistic and eat all the time. (I am fine with cooking meat, I just won’t eat it.)
Q: How would having a fully funded U.S. Ski Team affect your career in mogul skiing?
A: This is a super loaded question. First off, it would take huge weight off my shoulders (and my parents) financially. I could work on saving money for school and a life on the side of skiing. I would be able to focus solely on the task at hand which is skiing to the best of my ability. Athletes that are worried about if they have the financial means to make it to the next stop on World Cup cannot compete to the best of their ability. This is the highest level in our sport, I should only be worrying about skiing.
