Who is an athlete you try to emulate?
I try to emulate Russell Wilson, quarter back for the Seattle Seahawks. He was a total underdog who came out on top by working harder than anyone else. Not only is he a phenomenal athlete, but he is also a great leader.

What is your favorite class you have taken at UW?
I am very interested in majoring in Business, I learned a lot in my Micro Economics class.

What is your favorite memory as a Husky?
If you have one that isn’t rowing related, talk about it: The annual Spike Africa Big Red Regatta was great exposure to what racing would be like and such a fun day racing against all the pups! 

What is your rowing background?  What other sports have you played?
This is the first time I have ever rowed. I have been a swimmer since I was 7 and swam for Bellevue Club swim team for 4 years. Then I played water polo for Rain City club for 2 years. 

If you could be an athlete in another sport, what sport would it be?
Water polo was such a fun team sport and I only played it for a little while, I would've love to continue with it.
