Written Senior Perspective: Kelsey Hojan-Clark
Swimming with HWSD has meant more to me than I ever thought possible. I have learned that this sport is far greater than just swimming; it is a way of life. For the past four years I have identified myself as a student-athlete at Harvard and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way. I loved being able to see my teammates’ friendly faces walking across campus and sitting next to me in classes, along with the countless hours we spent together at Club Blogé.
