Who would you like to thank?: I would like to thank Tara and the whole Stanford coaching staff for giving me this amazing opportunity. I would also like to thank all of my AIM coaches, specifically Lauren Cornthwaite and Kelsey Scheer for helping me develop as a player and a person through their guidance. Special thanks to Lynn Mittler at MICDS and all of my teammates who have helped me grow by pushing me to do my best everyday. Lastly, I would like to thank both of my parents. My mother has traveled around the country with me and no matter how I play, she is always encouraging. Both my parents have made sure that I am supported every step of the way, whether it’s making sure I have what I need in between games or helping me with homework on the flight home after a long day of playing. I could not be the person I am today without them, and I am thankful to have both of them by my side. And a special shout out to both my siblings, who have lost their voices on multiple occasions cheering for me.
