How long have you been playing for the C.W. Post women’s soccer team?
This is my fourth year playing at Post.
What was your first impression of Post?
I remember thinking how beautiful the campus was and how everyone was very friendly and helpful.
How do you feel about Post now?
Post has really been my second home, and I am really thankful for everything that I have experienced here. I have learned a lot about myself and about life, which I probably would not have learned if I did not come here.
What lesson(s) will you take from Post?
The most important lesson I will take with me from Post is that if you want something, you have to work for it. No matter if it is schoolwork or soccer, you have to be willing to work hard to get the results that you want.
What is the best memory you have with the team?
My best memory with the team is last year, when we made it to the Sweet 16. Unfortunately, we lost that game, but it was a great feeling knowing that we were among the 16 best teams in the country, and I enjoyed playing every minute of that game. Even though we did not make it any further, I am really happy and proud of that season.
What do you want to do after you graduate from Post?
My goal is to become a physical therapist, so in a few years, I will be back in school.
What will you miss the most from Post?
I will definitely miss my team the most, as well as being a college athlete. I am also going to miss all of the friends I have made here, who have made this the best four years of my life.
