WHY I CHOSE PENN STATE
"As cliché as it may sound, attending Penn State has always been a dream of mine. I am continually amazed by the student's efforts through THON, to enhance the lives' of those impacted by childhood cancer. I know that the experiences I will have and the connections I will make at PSU will be unmatched. While playing soccer at Penn State, I will be surrounded by the top players and top coaches who will challenge me to grow not only as a player, but also a person."
