I chose Washington because: Its location in the beautiful, musical, diverse, bohemian city of Seattle.
The best thing about Seattle is: The weather.
My best race was: Women's four heat race No. 1 at 2005 U-23 World Championships in Amsterdam, Holland. After coming off the line dead last and being a length down to Canada (who called our bow ball at the 750-meter mark) we came back to win by a length of open water and qualify for the grand final.
After I graduate, I plan to: Get an English PhD, write a great American novel, move to South Africa and lead a fabulously worldly life.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: Treat every practice, test, work out and race as a gift; to be able to do what we love every day is a blessing. Celebrate it!
