Why I Chose MIT: I chose MIT in large part because of the volleyball team. During campus preview weekend, the girls showed me that MIT not only offered the best education in the world, but it was full of students that had fun and were involved in sports, clubs, Greek life, and much more. I knew I wanted to be a part of the university and the team.

High School: A 2008 graduate of Laguna Hills High School.
