I chose Washington because: I love the location, you've got mountains, lakes, an ocean and the city at your fingertips
The best thing about Seattle is: Summertime.
The best thing about UW is: The campus is beautiful and it has very good science programs, as well as a great rowing program
Favorite class It depends on the teacher
My best race was: NCAA Championship for the junior varsity eight; we took the sprint early and I knew that, because we were all racing for each other, we would win.
After I graduate, I plan to: Earn a PhD in zoology and research animal behavior
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: All the daily hard work is worth it when you cross the finish line first.

Harm says: "It's all about improving yourself to improve the team."
