Q and A with Maya Schechter

Why Dartmouth?
I wanted to go to college with brilliant, enthusiastic people, and that's exactly what I found at Dartmouth.

How long have you been rowing and what interested you in rowing?
I started rowing my junior year of high school, after some friends persuaded me to join Oakland Strokes. I immediately loved the teamwork and athleticism in rowing, and still do.

What is something that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I love dogs and want to adopt one right after I graduate.

What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus outside of rowing?
Sigma Delta Sorority. I've also participated in the Diversity Peer Leadership Program, Great Issues Scholars, and the Vagina Monologues.

What are your future plans, if any?
No plans as of yet, but I'd like to learn more about the intersection of sustainability and development and perhaps eventually work in those fields.
