Personal:

Gandy is the second youngest of eight siblings (four boys and four girls). Her brother Chris played American football on a semi-professional level for the Detroit Dawgs while three of her other siblings competed in track and field at university. She cites her favourite sporting memory as watching swimmer Michael Phelps at the 2004 Olympics Games in Athens – he also attended the University of Michigan. Gandy began playing basketball at the age of 15 after being inspired by watching Michael Jordan. Would most like to meet chef Gordon Ramsay. Favourite performers are Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson.

Trivia:

Would like to be a sports agent when her playing career is over..
