Why Yale? "It was before even visiting Yale's campus that I knew I was going to come here. Summer of my junior year I came to Yale's lacrosse camp and after meeting Coach Phillips and all of the girls on the team I just knew this was the place for me. Then, visiting the campus and learning more about the school there was no way I could go to any other school besides Yale. Yale is unlike any other school in the world and I am so, so grateful to be able to have such a rare opportunity."
