Before I came to Mount Holyoke College, student-athlete was simply a title I knew fit me. Now, it’s my identity. It’s an identity that I take an incredible amount of pride in, and one that I've built with the tremendous support of the Mount Holyoke community. At Mount Holyoke, my professors are curious about—and supportive of—my athletics. And the athletics department cares greatly about my academic career. The net effect of this appreciation and encouragement? Totally positive.
