Why did you sign up for JASY 2014?: I signed up for JASY because it was something that I always wanted to be a part of as an undergrad, but never had the opportunity to do. I feel that it is very important to educate through sport. It is something that I try to do in my career and I look forward to the challenge of teaching these children as much as I can.
Role at JASY Camp: At JASY camp I will be helping the children in the pool and taking pictures and video of our amazing journey!
