Why did you choose Georgetown?
I chose Georgetown for its impressive business school and the fact that it is in D.C. While choosing my school, I was constantly reminded by a mentor of mine to choose it for everything outside of athletics. Although athletics was a big part, I wanted to choose a school that would satisfy me if athletics was not a part of my life. I found that fit at Georgetown…from football, the classroom, and the surrounding area, Georgetown was the right school for me.
During my junior year, I joined a startup that one of my roommates’ brothers began. It is a bottled super coffee called Sunniva Caffe. Throughout the summer going into my senior year, we participated in Georgetown’s Startup Hoyas program. We plan to grow our company throughout our final year at Georgetown and continue after graduation.
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
I put in more work for my sport than just is required on the field, through film study to watching what I eat. The entire football team also participates with the Friends of Jaclyn organization, where we have adopted two kids with pediatric brain cancer.
What would you like to say to donors to Georgetown Athletics and how have they impacted you?
We couldn’t participate in athletics without the donors’ assistance. They help us get to our games and help provide the equipment we need. We are very grateful for having the up-to-date equipment in order to perform and look our best on the field.
