Why Iowa… When I walked around campus, I knew this could be my home away from home. Everybody is so nice, and helpful that it is hard not to feel welcomed.
My favorite aspect of rowing is… I have never done rowing before so my favorite part is that each day at practice, I am learning something new.
What made you want to become a rower… I wanted to be involved in an activity where the people were friendly and fun to be around and that was the vibe I got from the girls on the team. I also wanted to challenge myself to do something new.
