Favorite thing about Yale: “Everyone you meet is extremely interesting and equally as interested in you, no matter what you do.”

Favorite thing about sailing for Yale: “Aside from the team, the opportunity to get out of the city and get on the water for a few hours every day.  Not too many other sports get a natural retreat every time they go to practice."
