Ava Sanchez

Ava Sanchez is a junior studying Philosophy, Politics, Economics with a minor in Law and Social Justice out of the USC Gould School of Law. A native Angeleno, she grew up a fan of USC and was honored to be named a Trustee Scholar, but had a hard time choosing between universities. She was still undecided in spring of 2019, until she saw the band perform on campus and knew she had to be a part of it. She joined the Silks that fall and has been spinning with the TMB ever since. Her favorite memory in the TMB is when we set up for pregame in the Coliseum for our first game of Fall 2021. It felt so good to be home (and we got to watch TWO classes of Silks experience Game Day for the first time)!


Fun Fact: Both of my family dogs have had Star Wars-themed names (Luke Skywalker-Sanchez and Wookiee)

Christina Kuemerle

Christina is a rising junior majoring in Spanish and minoring in dance on the pre-medicine track. She is from Cleveland, Ohio and has been doing color guard since her sophomore year of high school and her experience includes marching drum corps with Legends, the Blue Knights, and the Bluecoats. When she was admitted to USC, she was so excited to continue her color guard career as a Silk while enjoying all the other amazing things about USC—beautiful location, incredible professors, and the best people! Her favorite memory with the TMB is the 2021 asu trip, specifically when a bunch of us jumped fully clothed into a pool at a donor’s house! 

Fun fact: I am in the process of getting my EMT certification!
