What will you major in/study? Exercise Science
Why did you choose ODU? “I chose Old Dominion because they have one of the best exercise science programs. I also chose ODU because as soon as I walked on the campus I fell in love.

“I would really like to thank my Mom the most. She has been my #1 cheerleader since the day I picked up my lacrosse stick. She has been the best supporter a girl could ask for!
