I was never considering Dartmouth until my mother forced me to tour it. I then realized that it had everything I was looking for; it was of medium size and had good academics, a strong sailing department, a gorgeous campus and most importantly, a happy and energetic student body.
How long have you been sailing and what got you interested in sailing?
I got interested in sailing at a very young age due to the fact that both of my parents were competitive sailors for the majority of their life. Unfortunately, I didn't love sailing at the time and quit after four years. Later on, I joined my school's sailing team and fell in love with the sport.
What Sailing or Academic achievements are you particularly proud of?
Parker Power Award (sailing) and Academic Pins in Calculus and Physics.
Tell us something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
Actually, my teammates would probably find it surprising that I have my General-Class Amateur Radio license. I also have an obsession with small spoons.
What are your future sailing and career plans?
I plan to make the most of my four years at Dartmouth and possibly continue on to grad-school. As of right now, I am looking into majoring in either Psychology or Neuroscience.
What sports or activities did you pursue in high school, and what do you hope to continue at Dartmouth?
In high school I was very active in my yacht club's amateur radio group, spent six years in an intensive mother/daughter philanthropy group, played volleyball and was in the Spanish club. I hope to continue the philanthropy aspect and of course sailing.
