What made you choose to come to Georgetown?
I wanted to find a school that would provide me with a great athletic experience, while also providing me the tools I need to develop myself as a student and person within the community.
What has been your favorite team experience?
My favorite experience as a Hoya would have to be when we volunteered at the MedStar Georgetown Pediatric Oncology Center to participate in the Easter Egg Hunt with the patients. It was simply a tightly knit group of friends having fun, while doing whatever we could to brighten the lives of the children there.
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
The most prevalent moment of giving 110% for Georgetown is during our running of the exorcist stairs on early December mornings. Sprinting up the steps while barely seeing the step in front of you is frightening, but necessary in order for us to succeed.
What would you like to say to Georgetown Athletics donors?
Quite simply, thank you. By providing us with the facilities and equipment we use day in and day out, we are able to excel not only in athletics, but also in the classroom and throughout the community.
