Position: Port, Starboard Height: 5'7" Year: 2nd

Hometown: Escondido

Major: Undeclared-Life Sciences

Hobbies: Sleep

Why rowing? I did cross country all four years of high school and hated it as much as I loved it which is what kept me on the team. As a college student I wanted to try something new, that would give me a similar feeling. What I love about rowing is the feeling of being on a team. I never did any other sport other than cross country and it's pretty independent so having to actually work with other people to achieve something because there's no other way is very different.

Fun fact: I'm an excellent hula hooper.

Why rowing? Although I had never rowed before, I knew that I wanted to once I started college because I had seen really cool pictures and videos of ripped rowers.
