Why did you choose this school?: As soon as I saw Lafayette I feel in love with the campus and area but most of all I saw it best fit to challenge me academically and athletically. The coaching staff as well as the players were extremely welcoming and made Lafayette feel like home.

Who would you like to thank?: I would like to thank my family and friends for helping me since day one and pushing me to starting my field hockey career. My parent have played a crucial role in my athletic development as they donated countless hours to drive me four hours twice a week in order for me to practice with my club team. I would like to give a special thanks to my coaches Jun and Richard Kentwell, because without them I would not be the player I am today. The competitive and constructive club that they have built has helped open me up to the world of competitive field hockey. I would like to also thank the numerous coaches that I have had over the years who have all shared their own unique form of the sport which have helped me form my own technique. All in all I could not have done it without the support of the people around me.
