I would say my favorite athlete growing up was Mia Hamm. Although I never really played soccer, it was inspiring to see a woman be so dominate in her sport. She also went to my dream school (UNC), so that made me like her even more. She actually came to one of our practices a year ago and it was amazing to see how humble and down to earth she was.
