Why Yale?  "Yale really supports the spirit of `and', meaning that you can learn about everything you're interested in, be on a Division I team, and participate in whatever activities you love.  When I visited, everyone was so friendly and supportive of their peers' interests.  Everyone who I saw perform just looked like they were having a blast, and I couldn't wait to experience that myself.  In addition, I am interested in a lot of different areas of study, and at Yale I'll be able to explore everything to figure out what I want to specialize in."  

Favorite Quote: "Either I will find a way, or I will make one." 

Who is your Inspiration? "My brother. He is the smartest person I know.  He has worked so hard to get where he is and he really loves what he is doing.  He is also a great coach and I hope that someday, if I go into coaching, I will be able to run a team as well as he does."
