Why did you choose Tech? I chose Tech for many reasons. The campus and surrounding towns are the perfect college town atmosphere. The academics are some of the best in the country. They have an amazing soccer program, and overall it truly feels like home.
What was your favorite thing about your visit? One of my favorite things about my visit to Tech was getting to hang out with my future teammates while watching the soccer match against UVA. The atmosphere at the game was unmatched.
What do you like about the Tech women’s soccer program? I like the Tech women’s soccer program for multiple reasons, such as the amazing coaching staff. The competitive soccer environment throughout the program itself while also playing in one of the top soccer conferences in the country is another thing I like about Tech. I also loved how close everyone on the team is all the way from upperclassmen to lowerclassmen. They all make the team feel like a family.
What are your soccer strengths? I feel my soccer strengths are my determination and my constant and quick movement on and off the ball.
Who is your favorite pro player (why)? My favorite pro player right now is Sophia Smith. She is so young but makes such a big impact on the field which is so inspiring.
