Why Dartmouth?
Dartmouth because it has impressive academic opportunities, a student body who values tradition and a beautiful rural setting.

How long have you been sailing and what got you interested in sailing?
I began sailing on Nantucket when I was seven. An activity my parents and grandparents always enjoyed, sailing was the obvious choice to fill my summer days. As I grew older, I enjoyed the social aspect of being on a team with my best friends and traveling to off-islands regattas.

What Sailing or Academic achievements are you particularly proud of?
AP Scholar with Distinction, National Science League Award in Chemistry, Bausch and Lomb Honorary Science Award.

Tell us something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
I am afraid of deep water.

What are your future sailing and career plans?
I hope to compete in the Newport Bermuda Race.

What sports or activities did you pursue in high school, and what do you hope to continue at Dartmouth?
In high school, I served on Student Government for four consecutive years, was a peer leader, tour guide and president of the environmental club and captain of our Varsity Swim team in 11th and 12th grade.
