Ideal place for development of character and education
Student-Athlete (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 14, 2017
As a student-athlete on UNC's prestigious women's soccer team, I mastered the skill of time management through excelling academically and athletically. Extra training outside of structured practices was required in order to maintain my role as a 4-year starter. This has taught me the necessity of taking personal time to learn and refine skills that I have carried outside of the athletic realm. The extraordinary team environment that I lived in throughout my career allowed me to experience all roles from freshman follower through to becoming a senior captain. Beyond leading by example, as I gained experience on the team, I had to work more in skills of confrontation and holding others accountable for the good of the team.
Beyond the intensity of college athletics, I have always carried my schoolwork to high standards. Picking up a double major in Biology and Environmental studies allowed me to combine my interests of research, environmental concerns, and the humanitarian call for action.
