Athlete Q&A
Why did you choose K-State?
I chose K-State because the atmosphere here is so amazing! When I came on my visit, I felt so welcomed and it felt like the perfect fit. My years here have proven that K-State is the perfect place for me!

What has rowing taught you about yourself?
Rowing has taught me that I can be so strong, not just physically, but mentally. When things get tough, we have so many teammates to lean back on and get us through.

What keeps you coming back to the team each year?
My teammates keep me coming back each year. I have made some great friends through the team and it has become my second family. I wouldn't dream of leaving my new family!
