Anyone you would like to thank?: I would like to thank my parents and grandparents for their unbelievable support, they have gone above and beyond in their contributions to my field hockey and academics. I would like to thank all of my coaches over the years without each of them, I would not be the player I am today. I would especially like to thank Jun and Richard Kentwell for always believing in me and training me to be the best player I can be since I was 9 years old. I know they will continue to push me over the next few years to continue to grow my skills and to develop my game even stronger. I am beyond thankful for all the opportunities I have earned while playing for Jun and Richard both within WC Eagles and outside the club. I would also like to thank my Episcopal Academy High School coach, Gina Buggy.
