I chose Washington because: It is the best university in Washington state.
The best thing about Seattle is: My family lives here.
My best race was: The WSU dual in Pullman my novice year because we learned that confidence and determination could go a long way.
After I graduate, I plan to: Do something artsy.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: What you get out of this sport depends on how much you put into it.
Anderson says: "Washington rowing is simply the best."
