H/F: What have you learned about yourself in your journey of becoming a wrestler?

H/F: What has been your favorite part of your career so far?
AN: The improvement and enjoying the ride. The training and learning my moves set. These memories of what I’ve learned from these incredibly talent people. It’s a blessing.
H/F: Who would your dream match be against?
AN: I’d would be so thankful to hang with any of the women in WWE. Having a match with Lita would be very badass!
H/F: Other than the dream match opponent, is there anyone that you haven’t worked with that you would like to one day?
AN: I’ve had the pleasure of recently training with Ivelisse Velez and would be grateful for a match one day. She is one of the best female wrestlers out there today. Also Many of the women in WWE like Alicia Fox, Sasha Banks, Natalya, Charlotte Flair.
H/F: What are some of your goals for 2017?
AN: Health and Happiness most importantly, and to continue to evolve into the wrestler and character I envision for myself.
H/F: Favorite cheat meal? Type of music? Type of movies?
AN: I don’t really have a cheat meal. I already always eat very healthy. Favorite foods however are vegetables, like lots of Broccoli and carbs. I’m Italian and Irish so Pizza and Spaghetti. Maybe cheat wise would be fried pickles. I’m a classic car chick, so classic rock, alternative rock mostly, but I’m also very open minded and I love listening to country, reggae, and Disney music from movies. Type of movies I like are comedy & action example: Ready to Rumble! One of my favorites with all my fave wrestlers.
H/F: What is something that not many people know about you?
AN: I like to read the same books as my mom. Having that time to meditate and lose yourself in a captivating story feels good for the mind.
H/F: Favorite place that you have wrestled so far?
AN: Orlando Fair Grounds my 2nd & 3rd matches were there. It was in May outside. Good weather and nice atmosphere.
H/F: Bucket list of places you want to wrestle?
AN: For WWE anywhere I would be thankful, but I would love to travel. I haven’t really been out of the country.
H/F: What do you enjoy doing when you aren’t wrestling?
AN: My hobbies would include classic car shows with my dad and brother. We just went to the Daytona Turkey Rod Run together with their cars. My Brother has a 76 Malibu and my dad a 62 Nova. I drive a 73 Chevy Nova, hence the Nova Girl Gimmick. I also like to play pool, paddle boarding, kayaking and yoga are a few things.
H/F: Finish this statement, if I wasn’t involved in wrestling, I would be doing…
AN: Probably the same thing I was before. Medical transport as an EMT still. I did that for two years before chasing my dream of wrestling.
