Why did you choose Delaware State University, Women's D1? "Delaware State University felt like home to me. Coach Jenkins made sure I felt secure in my decision and supported me every step of the way in the commitment process.

Thank you to my family, coaches, and teammates. A special thank you to Patrick Young for taking me under his wing to teach me the basics of lacrosse and for pushing me to do the hard drills that have made me the player I am today. To Coach Dwayne, Coach Natasha, and Coach Scott: Thank you for pushing me and giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful program."
