Why he chose Yale: After visiting Yale, I knew I wanted to spend my college years here. Yale is truly an incredible place, which combines unmatched academics with a student body that is fun, diverse, talented, and interesting. I could envision myself enjoying this type of atmosphere and I'm glad I got the chance to do so.
Background: After one of my older brothers started playing squash, I wanted to give it a try. While I played a lot of tennis as a kid, squash was so much fun that I just never really looked back. With a lot of support from my family and help from my coaches, I was able to continue to play the game I enjoy so much.
Yale Highlights: I was going to try to pick an individual match or a team win, but I really couldn't. There's nothing quite like being in that huddle before a big match. You look in the eyes of your teammates and you see why you work so hard and why it is so exciting to play college squash at Yale.
