Who is your Ultimate role model? too many to say!

Social Media Bio:

Our next rookie left Seattle to live the #EastCoastBeastCoast life. Watch out for her slicing blades, huge hucks and crazy footblocks (we know you saw that video). Samiya is the reason we constantly listen to Relax or Get Murked and we wouldn’t have it any other way. She loves to eat cucumbers at practice (but only if fermented) and hates slow walkers. Once her neurologist asked her to draw an analog clock and she couldn’t #GenZ. One more fun fact: she knows how to unicycle and was on a team in elementary school! Brute Squad is proud to present #11 Samiya Ismail!
