What will you major in/study? “I am looking to study a split major in Business or Communication and Art.”
Why did you choose the school? “It sums up the perfect college experience for me. I want to be near a city, but not IN a city, and San Francisco is amazing! I want a small school with small classes, warm weather, a beautiful campus, school spirit, and family nearby. It is a major plus that the lacrosse team is great as well! The coaches are awesome and I can look forward to having two girls from my club team, XTEAM, as teammates. Its absolutely perfect in every way. I cannot wait to be part of the GAEL family!”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last year was a huge time of growth for us together as a team. We improved tremendously since the beginning of the year. We had a coaching change this past season, Heather Jack, and she is amazing. She will be our coach next year and will continue to make a huge impact on our growing program. I am very excited for what is in store for us in this upcoming season!”
Thank You: “I cannot thank my XTEAM family enough. They are truly amazing and have been there with me since the 7th grade. I cannot imagine my life without having XTEAM in it. They have shaped me into the person I am today. I will always and forever be an XTEAMer. I would like to also thank my whole family including my parents and brother and sister. They have been huge supporters of me throughout the whole process. I love them all so dearly. They are ALL very excited to come visit me in California!”
