The last four years I have spent at Harvard and as part of the women’s varsity soccer team have been the most memorable moments of my life. Within my team I not only found my best friends… for life, but I also found a family and the most incredible group of women who I was able to grow with both as a player and as a person. If I could, I would choose Harvard and the incredible program I was blessed to be a part of a million times over. I am so sad to leave, but at the same time, so excited to join the incredible group of alumni, many of which I have had the pleasure of getting to know. Harvard, Harvard Athletics, my teammates (past and present), my coaches, and Harvard women’s soccer – thank you for the experience and for giving this first generation dreamer the experience of a lifetime.
