Hopes for the future:
I want to enjoy every last minute of high school I have left. Not only would I love to continue my lacrosse career at a top college, I want to leave a mark everywhere I go. I want to be thought of as someone who has good character, cares for others and as a successful person who makes a difference wherever she goes.
What would you like to study in college and why? Currently I am undecided but my interests are in mathematics, sports medicine and education.
What do you like to do for fun? Playing four sports and homework doesn’t leave a lot of free time, so when I do I like to enjoy time with my family and friends.
Why do you like being a Trinity Prep Saint? I feel very fortunate and blessed to be a Saint. Of course the education I am receiving is top notch, but even more important to me are the relationships I have developed with my teachers, coaches and friends. Most of my coaches have been my teachers and they support me in the classroom and on the field. A great example of this special bond you create with your teachers/coaches at TPS is Mrs. Miller. Mrs. Miller is my weightlifting coach, ninth-grade adviser and ninth-grade English teacher. She not only pushes me in the weight room, but she also encourages me to be a better English student and still offers support even though I am no longer in her class. I know she will always be there as I continue through high school and college. These are the types of relationships you build as a TPS Saint. This is why I love being a Saint!
Anything else you’d like to add? I am proud to be a student athlete and I am so thankful to have the best teammates, friends, coaches and family. I am lucky to have a sister and dad that always push me to be my best on the field and in the weight room.
