Why Yale: “People talk about the feeling of just knowing that a school is for them the moment that they step foot on campus. That is not quite what happened to me. Of course the beauty and energy of the campus is unreal but I didn't fall in love with the school until I started talking to Yale students. Every single person I spoke to was interesting, engaging, and friendly. As for the rowing team: I am honored and excited to be a new member of a team of outstanding women. I watched their intensity on the water and team unity on land. I cannot wait to be part that.”
Porter Says: “Lydia brings energy into the mix. She is intense and passionate and will bring both to YWC. She rows big. As a member of the US JR team last year she gained experience in the pair. I am excited about her arrival.”
