BA:  You are in your 2nd year of university, what did it take for you to get to a Division 1 championship?
JA:  Just staying focused and executing my race and trying to advance until I get here.

BA:  What is the transition like going from Club Monica which you would have been in all your life to being coached under Coach Henry Rolle?

JA:    Coach Rolle (With a chuckle)

BA:   Talk about getting on the track and preparing to run in the heats of the women’s 200m, what goes through your mind?
JA:   Just trying to focus as much as I can to execute, to get out, stay forward and push as hard as I can to get to the finish line.

BA:  What was Coach Rolle’s instructions?
JA:   Just to get out, maintain, lean forward and swing my arms.

BA:  After it is all said and done, what are you going to take from this experience?
JA:   Stay focused, train harder and come back next year to advance to the finals

BA:    Who would you like to send a shout out to back home?
