Favorite thing about Yale: "I am most excited about getting to know the people at Yale, both and students and the professors. Almost every current student that I've spoken with has mentioned that one of their favorite things about Yale is the amazing and diverse people found on campus."

Favorite thing about sailing for Yale: "My favorite part is that everyone has already been so welcoming and I can tell that the team will become my family right away. I will definitely need a group of people to support me in my new home so far away from Hawaii nei."
