Why did you choose to attend Georgetown?
I chose Georgetown because it is a good balance between top notch academics and a great soccer team, which is very rare to find.
What is your favorite team experience?
My greatest team experience would have to be beating West Virginia in the first round of NCAA’s last year. At the end of 90 minutes, we were tied 1-1 with them and had to go to penalty kicks which we ended up winning. Celebrating with everyone after we scored the winning penalty kick was so exciting and truly something I will never forget.
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
Giving 110% for me is working hard and giving your best at everything you do, whether that be in the classroom or on the soccer field.
