Meet The Cardinal: Alix Klineman

Dec. 3, 2009

Each week will feature a Q&A with a different member of the 2009 Stanford Women's Volleyball team. This week get to know junior Alix Klineman!

My goals for this season are…
To win a national championship.

My favorite team to watch as a kid was…
The Lakers. I'm OBSESSED with Kobe!.

The talent I’d most like to have is…
To be able to sing. I have a horrible voice, but it doesn't stop me.

The best thing about Stanford is…
The people. To be surrounded my so many great, interesting, and giving people is pretty special.

My funniest teammate is…
Janet, no question. She makes me laugh even when she doesn't mean to.

The sport I am the worst at is…
I was pretty bad at softball back in the day. I didn't have the attention span...

Something about me that others would be surprised to hear is…
I skipped first grade, so I'm still only 19.

My favorite volleyball memory is…
I have so many. Most recently, it was probably beating Texas in the semi-final match last year. The odds were completely against us and we came back. It was pretty magical.

My biggest pet peeve is…
Slow drivers. It gives me a little bit of road rage.

If I could travel anywhere in the world I would go to…
Brazil. For some reason I have a weird fascination with that country and I have been dying to go there for so long. I'd also love to play volleyball there if I ever get the chance.

The best advice I’ve received was… 
This isn't necessarily a piece of advice, but my dad has definitely instilled in me the trait to be very analytical. In every situation I think about things pretty carefully and always try to see things from more than one perspective.
