I love rowing. I am still learning, and I can't wait to use my physical ability and grow with a team while I improve.
I am a two year officer in DECA and have qualified for State finals two years. I am a vice President and handle communications and marketing for our chapter, which is one of the larger in Illinois. I am on my class council and am active in spirit events and leadership events in my school. I also help recruit middle schoolers to attend our application only Academy within our school.
I have always been in multiple sports before finding my love, rowing, on March 4, 2018. I make sure to balance academics, athletics, then school life and activities, in that order. I grew up doing this, having parents who were Div1 athletes, so I have learned to manage my time well.
I am a freshman leader and help the incoming freshman acclimate to high school by mentoring them. I teach learn to row for my crew every day in the summer. It helps me to work on my skills, since I am a newer rower.
