Why Iowa... I got into the Early Decision nursing program, which was a major deciding factor for me to attend Iowa. I want to be a nurse and earning a guaranteed spot in the nursing program as a freshman was the cherry on top of this beautiful campus and perfect distance from my family.
My favorite aspect of rowing is... I love the thrill of being in a boat with seven other rowers a giving 110 percent, trying to out-row the other boats that are next to you in the water. I love being able to see the improvement that I have made and knowing that my hard work is paying off.
What made you want to become a rowing... The fact that I had a chance at fulfilling my dream of being a Division 1 athlete was the main reason I wanted to try rowing. I came to know about rowing when Susie Stralina and April Podbregar approached me in the bookstore and told me I looked athletic and should join the team.
