Why Iowa… It will be an amazing experience and one that I do not want to miss out on. The rowing the coaches and the team seen like a great fit alongside a great academic program and I’m really looking forward to joining.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… It is the ultimate team sport in an environment that allows you to challenge you self both mentally and physically as an individual and in a team environment.

What made you want to become a rower… My sister started the sport first and really enjoyed so I thought I would give it a go and I loved it and carried on with it ever since.
