Personal Quote:
“It is hard to adequately express how much I enjoyed my time at UCLA. I am extremely grateful for the four years I spent there and it will forever remain one of the highlights of my life. I learned so much, made countless personal connections, and discovered a lot about myself both as an athlete and a person. Overall my time at UCLA played a huge role in shaping me into who I am today.”
