Why Penn State
"I chose to attend Penn State because I attended Lake Owen Camp in 2008 where I met Coach Steve Shephard. We talked about how I could be a part of the gymnastics team and asked if I was interested in an official visit. When I visited Penn State, I loved the campus and the girls on the team were really nice."
