Why Iowa… I choose the university of Iowa because I really liked the campus and all the different classes that I could choose from.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… Learning a new thing, making new friends, and challenging myself everyday.

What made you want to become a rower… Learned about rowing at orientation and joined the team.
