Best thing about being a Saintsation: The best part of being a New Orleans Saintsation, besides having the best seat in the Dome on gameday, is being able to perform for the most amazing team and fans in the NFL and being a positive role model for young girls.

What is your most outstanding attribute: Finding the positive in any situation. I always try to look at things as the cup being half full instead of half empty.
Other than your family, who is a positive role model in your life: My dance teacher since I was a young girl, Mrs. Mari. She is a former Saints Angel that transformed me into the dancer I am today and always encouraged me to be the best I could be.

But if I had to travel to one place, it would have to be Australia. I have always dreamt of snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef; I think it would be an amazing experience.
