  • How I Became an Athena
    May 09, 2018
    I never intended on going to Claremont McKenna College. In fact, I am from Claremont; I have lived here for most of my life. I can make a 5-mile radius of my elementary school, middle school, high school and college. So, no, I did not dream of going to college 2.7 miles from my house. Since I was eight years old, it was my dream to go Georgia Tech and be a Yellow Jacket. My aunt was a walk-on softball player at Georgia Tech. She was their 4-year starting catcher and set the homerun record there. She was my idol and I wanted to be just like her. I wanted to be a Division-I athlete. This is what drove me. It was this end goal that motivated me through practices, CrossFit workouts, pitching lessons and batting lessons. It was my light at the end of the tunnel.
