“I THINK THERE IS A RESPONSIBILITY THAT GOES ALONG WITH BEING A SCHOLARSHIP ATHLETE AT UVA, AND THAT DRIVES ME TO BE MY BEST. I ALWAYS WANT TO REPRESENT THE UNIVERSITY AS BEST I CAN. THE PEOPLE I HAVE MET AND THE OPPORTUNITIES I HAVE BEEN GIVEN SINCE ARRIVING AT UVA HELP ME TO CHALLENGE MYSELF EVERY DAY. WITHOUT THIS TYPE OF SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT, I DO NOT THINK I WOULD BE WHERE I AM TODAY.”
