Why Iowa… I chose the University of Iowa because I love the atmosphere of Iowa City and I like the campus; it feel like home to me.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… Being apart of a team and working together to achieve our goals.

What made you want to become a rower… I wanted to continue athletics in college and rowing was something I hadn’t tried before. I came to a clinic and summer camp at the University of Iowa.
