Betsy Hassett off the Pitch:

Full Name: Betsy Doon Hassett

Nickname(s): Betty, BetsG, Kiwi

I Chose Cal because...I wanted to play soccer in America and Cal is amazing.

My favorite thing about Berkeley is...Yogurtland.

When I'm upset, I like to...go on an adventure and do something outrageous.

I get mad when I miss this TV show: "Outrageous Fortune"

Cal is better than other schools because...we have the coolest colors and the coolest people.

Something I learned from my parents not chew with my mouth open.

If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a pro surfer in the summer and pro snowboarder in the winter.

What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? Piha, my favorite beach and Titibabs AKA the eatery Titirangi Kebabs.
