Most memorable crew experience?
There are countless embarrassing moments for me. Katie Barnett making fun of me for
months after having a huge blond moment in our Facebook group chat. There were also the times when I flipped my single every single trial I did sophomore year and Casey saying to me “that was the best flip I have ever seen”. Usually, it's a good thing to get complimented on how well you are rowing NOT when you flip.

Most embarrassing crew experience?
My most embarrassing crew experience was last year. My first official year on Varsity and me the little ole sophomore flips her single in front of both the Varsity eights. And instead of getting back into my single I just swam to the dock.

Favorite regatta?
My favorite regatta was novice regatta because that is where I became close with my now best friend Katie Scarlett.

What will you miss the most?
The thing I will miss about crew are the experiences it has given me. Before crew I don't think I would be able to say that I have flipped an eight by myself not once but twice. I will miss the friends it has provided me. The girls varsity team can be snappy towards each other, passive aggressive, or we actually work together. Those will be the moments that I miss about the girls team.

What Crew taught you?
Crew has taught me many things. It has taught me how to have eighteen hour school days. From getting up at 4:30 every morning to going to bed around 9:30 to 10:30. It has taught me how not to complain because you have to work for what you want. It has also taught me how to take pride in everything you do from your failures because you can always learn from them to your accomplishments because there is always room for improvement.
