Person who pushes you or makes you better: I think at that end of the day, motivation is personal. Only I can give myself that push to the top.
What do you like to do outside of your sport: I play guitar, lift weights, paint, and longboard.
Favorite class and why: Anything exercise related, physical or otherwise. I'm passionate about the human body and making it stronger.
Favorite part of Hanover outside of class: I love the scenery. Beautiful campus, especially being right on the Ohio River.
