"I have wanted to be a Gopher since I was 11 years-old, and I absolutely loved their soccer camp. It is surreal to think I will actually be playing for the University of Minnesota next fall. Minnesota seems to have everything I could ever look for: a beautiful campus, great people and outstanding academics that fit what I want to do for a future career. The fact that my mom and sister both attended Minnesota also played a role. I can't wait to join them in being a part of the Gopher family!"
