Favorite Quote: "Somewhere behind the athlete you've become, behind the hours you've practiced, the coaches who've pushed you, the teammates who've believed in you, and the fans who've cheered for you is the little girl who threw the ball that very first time, the one who fell in love with the game, and never looked back. Play for her." - Mia Hamm

Why I Chose Lafayette: I chose Lafayette because it gave me an instant comfort feeling; the same which I feel when I'm home. I had trouble leaving home because of my close family relationships, but being at Lafayette felt like I was with my family and the right fit for me. Lafayette College also gave me the best of both worlds. It gave me the ability to play competitive Division 1 softball as well as compete and strive for excellence at a rigorous academic program.
