I Chose Cal because...it's the greatest public school in the nation
My favorite thing about the Bay Area is...there are so many places to go, so many sights to see. There is always something new out there.
Something on my iPod that might surprise you...is the fact that I don't own an iPod.
Most interesting thing I did this summer was...camping and boating with family and friends at Lake Nacimiento.
When I'm upset, I like to...sleep. I usually feel better in the morning.
If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...a normal full-time student enjoying college.
