What is your favorite part of road trips?
The games we play in the hotel... anything from top chef to the newlywed game!
What is your major & why?
I am an AMES major (Asian Middle Eastern Studies). I am so intrigued by the rich culture and history and languages of China. One of my goals is to become fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin, and Dartmouth's AMES program provides unbelievable language classes and overseas opportunities which I participated in during the summer of '10 in Beijing.
What do you like most about putting on a Dartmouth lacrosse uniform?
I literally get the goose bumps every time I get to put on a Dartmouth Lacrosse jersey. I can't help but think about all of the previous generations of laxers that have paved the way before us. I love knowing that when we wear those uniforms and step on the field, we are representing decades of dedication and love for this team.
