Student Athlete of the Week

shariTrinity senior Shari King is on the Trinity tennis team.  Shari is a math major and is minoring in economic and business administration.

Q: If you could trade places with anyone in the world who would it be? Why?

A: I would like to trade places with a person who lives in Africa.  I’d like to experience what life would be like for someone in another country.  Often times we have an ethnocentric view of our country.  We tend to give off the vibe that we are better off than people who live in other countries.  I would like to see what their life is life first hand.

Q: Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

A: Hopefully settled down in my career and personal life. I’d like to have a family and a few kids running around.

Q: What is your favorite part about being a Trinity student-athlete?

A: I like the team community.  Being on a team provides support for me.  I am an introvert.  The ME, MYSELF and I type.  Being on the tennis team provides me the opportunity to make friends.

Q: Do you have any hidden talents?

A: Yes I do (with a large smile).  I like to do nail art.  My nails are plain right now.  However, I love to do nail designs and make balloon sculptures. Not at the same time of course (small chuckle)!

Q: Who has been the biggest influence in your life?

A: I know this might sound a bit cliché, but it’s my mother.  I say that because I have seen her transform.  My mom has been through some things.  She has grown from them.  Grown in a way that is inspiring.  I have the chance to learn from her mistakes, as well as her success.

Q: What do you like to do in your leisure time?

A: I HAVE NO LEISURE TIME! (Lol) But, when I have a spare moment, I like to do nail art like I mentioned earlier.  I recently just got into reading blogs and watching different YouTube channels.  So far, those videos have helped me with math, as well as some pretty interesting techniques dealing with nail art.

Q: What is your favorite midnight snack?

A: Peaches!  I love canned sliced peaches.  I go to Costco and get the giant pack.  Those are usually gone within a week.

Q: Once you graduate from Trinity, how will you give back to the community?

A: I would like to donate money.  However, often the money that is collected isn’t used to benefit the cause.  So instead, I would like to start my own program geared towards helping children.  The purpose of the program would be to encourage children to further their education and to follow their dreams.
