Why I Chose Cal:
"It's an excellent school with a great water polo program. I also wanted to be coached by Rich Corso." Is there anything that sets you apart from your teammates?
"My high school did not have a water polo team. In the last few years, I have competed on the Canadian women's national team. We took second at the Pan-American games and fourth at World League Super Finals." What has been your favorite moment as a Golden Bear?
"I really like the school spirit and support that the Cal student-athletes show each other."
