I always strive to work hard and make my leaders proud. I set high expectations for myself for everything, especially sports and my academics. I work very hard until I reach my goal, and then I set an even higher one. I believe that a person is only as good as they think they can be, so I am always working towards being the best. Collegiate rowing appeals to me because I believe it builds great character in young athletes, and helps those students build a sense of community at their college.
