STICK CHECK What was it that drew you to the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program? The sense of community drew me to the Dartmouth Lacrosse
Program. When I came to visit I really felt included by the girls on the team
and knew that Dartmouth was the perfect fit. Where is your favorite place to eat on campus? My favorite place to eat on campus is definitely Collis.
Best breakfasts! Do you have a hidden talent? I would say my hidden talent is pogosticking.
What do you want to be when you grow up? I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. When I was
younger my dream job was a crossing
guard but that dissolved after my 2nd grade
teacher laughed at my future career presentation.
What was your first job? My first job was on Nantucket. My job was to carry lemonade
and snacks back and forth from my house to the lemonade stand. I made 1 penny
for every trip.
