Describe your favorite memory at McDaniel.

My favorite memory at McDaniel is the two spring break trips I got to take with the lacrosse team. Freshman year we got to go to Nashville which was so much fun! This year, we traveled to Colorado which was such a cool experience with my teammates.

What are some of the challenges you encountered and how did you overcome them?

I think one of the biggest challenges I encountered was having to go back and forth with online school and in person classes. I am a student who needs a routine and structure. I overcame this by making myself a schedule while we were at home due to covid. I also have to thank the professors who realized the challenges, and helped us through them with extra office hours and meetings.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I am using my year of eligibility at Saint Leo University while getting my MBA 

What advice would you give yourself as a first-year student at McDaniel?

 Do not be afraid to meet with your professors and ask for help.

Where do you see the world in 10 years?

I see myself in Florida working for the business side of a sports team.

How do you reflect on your senior year during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic?

I am very sad that we missed the “whole” college experience.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with the McDaniel community?

Thank you for supporting the McDaniel students through a hard couple of years due to the pandemic. We were able to make the most of it and felt safe the entire time!
