Why Dartmouth?
Dartmouth was the only school that just 'fit' into everything I was looking for. The size, location, quality, strong outdoors programs, etc. were all right, and thus it sounded like the one for me. I ended up applying early decision without ever visiting the campus.

How long have you been riding and what got you interested in riding?
The summer before 6th grade I went to 2 horse camps and loved them. Within less than a year I was taking lessons as many days a week as I could,  and had my own horse and was competing in multiple events. I was totally hooked. It was the best feeling to be constantly working toward something bigger and more challenging with my best friend (my horse).

Tell me something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
I play the banjo and fiddle, and love to blues dance. 

What other activities are you involved in on campus?
Im an intern for the sustainability office, I sing in the gospel choir, and I helped found and lead a mindfulness/meditation group.

What are your future plans?
I really have no idea. Since getting back into riding this year, my teenage dreams of becoming a horse trainer or working with horses in some way has been rekindled, but who knows. I'd love to work on sustainability consulting and sustainable food systems planning in developing countries.
