Why did you choose to attend Georgetown?
I chose Georgetown because our soccer team consistently is one of the top programs in the country and the location around the school is beautiful. Also, it doesn’t hurt that it is one of the best academic schools in the nation!
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
Everyday I try to work as hard as I can for my teammates, myself, and the school because I know what a privilege it is to be here. Also, as a team, we all shave our heads for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to raise awareness for childhood cancer.
What is your favorite Georgetown tradition?
Georgetown Day – it is an awesome day for the whole school community to get together and celebrate the end of a great year.
