When did you start to play squash?  Where?
I started playing squash the summer of 2011. My first real squash game was at a summer camp with Jahangir.
How were you introduced to the game?

I was introduced to squash by my friends at school (Potomac) in spring of 2011.
What is your best memory about playing squash?Najera1
My best memory of playing squash is my most recent tournament where I had the toughest match of my squash career. It was only a 4 game match, but it was intense. Every point was an extreme challenge because of his incredible speed and competitiveness.
How have you improved as a squash player working with me/What is your favorite thing about working with me?

My favorite thing about working with you is that you don’t give up even when I get frustrated or grumpy because I can’t hit a certain shot. You push me and motivate me to do better and to become great.
What drill do you like best and why?
My favorite drill is the boasting drill because I just love hitting that shot over and over again.
What is your next squash goal?

My next squash goal is to win a tournament at any level (bronze, silver, or gold).
