What will you major in? Communications
Why did you choose the school? “The University of Maryland has always been my dream school ever since I was little. I love everything Maryland has to offer. I knew when I stepped on campus that this was the school I wanted to go to. When I went on my unofficial visit last September I was able to meet the team and coaches and I quickly fell in love with the school. It felt like a family atmosphere and that’s what I wanted. It also felt like a great academic and athletic fit for me. I loved the coaches, the team, and the athletic tradition that Maryland has.”
What is your High School team’s outlook for next year? “We have a very positive outlook for next year. I believe that we are going to compete against strong opponents and we are going to do very well. Manhasset hasn’t been to States in awhile and I’m looking for that to change. I believe we all want the same things and want to go far.”
