Born and raised in Chicago, I grew up in a small town with a population of under 3,000 people. However, I attended a public high school with 4,500 kids. Growing up with two older brothers and seven boy neighbors threw me into sports since before I can remember. Field hockey, lacrosse, hockey and intramural basketball during the year with tennis, golf, and sailing in the summer.
I have had to overcome many obstacles in my life, some as small as a bad grade to major hip surgery to death of loved ones. These obstacles have shaped me into a resilient, hardworking, patient, and mature woman. Acquiring these strengths at such a young age led to my involvement in Student Alliance for Homeless Youth, the Junior Board for Hadley School for the Blind, Voices in Prevention, Hive Five Choir, and Church mission trips. I have also been awarded many leadership positions within those groups.
Making Trinity College my home was a spur of the moment decision, but one of the best decisions I’ve made. I was not familiar with this school until I got recruited for lacrosse; I flew out for a weekend visit and fell in love with the school, and the liberal arts education.
Here I am, further expanding my horizon and taking classes I wouldn’t have the chance to take at another school. two semesters done, and six more to go helping to prepare me for what’s next.
