Personal Statement

 Hello! My name is Vaeda Burkhead and I am an American student-athlete who lived in Costa Rica. In 2020 when I left Costa Rica because of the Covid issue  I continued to graduate from high school in the United States  as a one year senior. I genuinely appreciate all the interest in me as a student athlete .

I ve gone on to earn an academic scholarship  at Auburn University studying animal science (pre-vet/equine science) .  Thank you all again for all your interest in me as a student athlete
