WHY DID YOU CHOOSE LONGWOOD?  “I chose Longwood because I feel it is the best fit for me both academically and athletically. I know that I will be challenged there, which in turn will make me a well-rounded person and athlete. I also like the small town feel, because it feels very tight knit and family-like.”

ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK?  “First and foremost, I would like to thank my parents. They are my moral support and they have nurtured me into the person I am today. Throughout the many hours of driving to tournaments and practices, the thousands of dollars spent, and the countless hours of memories made, I have made a solid relationship with my parents. Next I would like to thank my sister, my niece, and Ayten, for they have also supported me in this journey, both morally and financially. Also, I would like to thank all of my coaches. Richard, Jaja, and Jun, and also Coach Law and Coach Wells. They have all helped me become the goalkeeper I am today, so without them, I wouldn’t even be writing this. I would also like to thank some of my supporters I have met throughout my hockey career. Coach John, Coach Janina, my friends at futures, my school and club teammates, my best friends, my Middle Township girls, and all of my other supporters I have. And to save the best for last, I would like to thank my future college coaches, Iain, Chaney, and Taylor. I am incredibly excited to work hard for your program and win some championships.”
