DURHAM, N.C. -- Recently, GoDuke.com sat down with senior Richa Jackson to learn more about the Midwest City, Okla., native.

GoDuke.com: Who would you trade places with for a day?
Richa Jackson: Michael Jordan, because he is one of my role models as far as basketball. He’s a great player, and just having an opportunity to know how he operates from the inside would be terrific.

GoDuke.com: What is the biggest difference between high school and college basketball?
RJ: I would definitely have to say the speed of the game is faster. There are a lot more demands, defense is very stressed, way more than high school was, and I would say the intensity of the game, as well, is very different from high school.

GoDuke.com: What is your dream job?
RJ: Playing in the WNBA. My favorite team is the LA Sparks, but at this point it really doesn’t matter.

GoDuke.com: Where is your favorite spot to study on campus?
RJ: I like to study in my room, quietly by myself. That helps me to get my thoughts right and actually get work done.

GoDuke.com: Which Duke sporting event other than your own do you like to attend?
RJ: The volleyball games are very interesting. They look really good this year and just seeing them play excites me.

GoDuke.com: Who has had the most impact on your life and why?
RJ: I would say my mother and father. My father taught me how to play basketball and has been there for me since I was young and my mother has been a moral support, so both of them have been tremendously important to me.

GoDuke.com: What are your goals for the season?
RJ: I would have to say winning the ACC championship and getting to the final four and winning a national championship.
