What does being a student-athlete mean to you?
Being privileged to compete while earning my degree from Virginia Tech means so much to me. I am so thankful to go to school here and I am even more thankful for all the support we receive as student athletes. The campus, facilities, and fan base are all amazing at Virginia Tech.
Where is your favorite study spot on campus?
I was not on campus a lot this year due to my classes being online. I would sometimes go to new classroom building to get my studies in. It usually wasn’t as crowded as the library but still had what I needed to get my studies in.
What study skill or academic success tip/trick has helped you the most?
Time management is the largest tip I could give an incoming college student athlete. Being able to manage your practice schedule, social life, and academics is something that takes time to develop. The sooner you can manage all of these the better.
What is your favorite course you have taken so far?
One of my favorite courses was the personal finance class I took two years ago. I liked the course because it taught me a lot about things I will definitely use in the future. Being able to manage money is such a crucial skill that is better learned young.
What advice would you give yourself as a freshman?
If I could give myself advice as a freshman it would be to fail more. Early on in my career I was reserved and didn’t really put myself out there. I think when you fail often that means you are reaching past your current potential. Failing is the only way to know what your maximum potential is and I wish I did it earlier in my career
