What is your favorite roses memory? 
Literally all of regionals last year.

What do you do outside of frisbee? 
I’m involved with the Cornell Organization for Labor Action (hmu if you wanna talk unions!), and really enjoy being outside.

How did you get your nickname? 
Well there’s a running history of roses being named after puppets (Elmo/Rebecca Baldwin, Kermit/Lilly Mendoza,… Grover- even though that one hasn’t stuck @Jessica Wan). Last year Kermit thought I was a trash collector on the field, and Oscar the Grouch lives in a trash can. So, that plus the fact that if I had been a boy my mom might’ve named me Oscar—> “Oscar”

What's your favorite tournament food? 
Pickles and fruit snacks (I once ate 12 packs at one tournament)

What's your most embarrassing moment? 
At club sectionals I stopped the roll but also accidentally picked the disc up a little and then dropped it. Sad day. Luckily other team let us keep it anyway.
