GopherSports.com recently sat down with sophomore forward Kionna Kellogg to learn a little bit more about why she came to the U, her favorite part about living in Minneapolis and her nail polish collection.
Why did you come to the U of M from Iowa?
"I really like the cities and the idea of being in a bigger place. I wanted my parents to still be able to watch me play, but I needed to get away from them a little bit. The drive from Ames to Minneapolis is about three and a half hours."
What is your major here at the U?
"My major is communications, and I've switched a couple of times, so hopefully this one will stick."
What are your post-graduation plans?
"I don't know what I want to do when I graduate, but I'm thinking that I want to stay around the cities. I just like the cities."
What is your favorite part about living in Minneapolis?
"My favorite part about living in the cities is, first the view coming from I35. I love it. I get excited everytime that I come back. I also like Dinkytown and our living facilities, because we live with all of our teammates. So, its really cool to be able to walk down the hall and go hang out with whoever I want. We spend a lot of time together."
Name one quirky thing about you...
"I'm obsessed with nail polish. I have somewhere around 82 bottles of nail polish. They're not painted right now, but they typically are. I paint my nails and a lot of the girls on the team's nails. I could be a manicurist."
