Why Dartmouth?
I love the passion and school spirit, the gorgeous campus and boathouse, and just how happy people are at Dartmouth.

How long have you been rowing and what got you interested?
I've been rowing since freshman fall in 2007. When I was in fourth grade I saw someone wearing "crew" flip flops and was curious as to what that was, and knew at that moment that I would try rowing. I was terrible at other sports so I tried out and fell in love with rowing.

Have you won any awards?
I was the captain of my team in high school. Results: 1st in the U23 4x at Club Nationals 2011, 1st in the Junior Women's 2x at Cromwell Cup 2011, 2nd in the 4+ at NEIRAs 2011, 1st in the Junior Women's 8+ at Canadian Henley 2010, 1st in the Senior Women's Dash 8+ at Canadian Henley 2010, 1st in the Junior Women's 4+ at Club Nationals 2010, 1st in the Junior Women's 8+ at Club Nationals 2010, 1st in the 4+ at NEIRA's 2010, 2nd in the Junior Women's 4+ at Head of the Charles 2009 & 2008, 3rd in the Junior Women's 4+ at Youth Nationals 2009

Something interesting?
I've been playing the Chinese hammered dulcimer since I was 8 years old and it's really fun.

Future plans?
Traveling a lot and seeing the world.
