|High School:||Severn School|
I chose Dartmouth because of both the incredible opportunities the college offers and the sailing team. When I was researching Dartmouth during my junior and senior years of high school I was impressed by all the resources available to students; from a great alumni network to renowned professors. Enticed by the school's assets I put it at the top of my list and when I visited the school and team I knew it was the right school for me. The sailing team is incredibly close and sportsmanlike and that impression solidified my decision to apply early.
How long have you been sailing and what got you interested in sailing?
I've been sailing just about since birth. My dad grew up sailing in New Jersey, so I when I was born my family moved from Washington D.C. to Annapolis, Md. in order to introduce the sailing culture and sport to the family. The activity was always such an integral part of my family life that it was only natural my sisters and I started classes at AYC.
What Sailing or Academic achievements are you particularly proud of?

Sailing: contributing to the Lady D's win at ACC's this past year (2015)
