Why do you think it’s important for young women to hold leadership roles?

Leadership roles for young women are important as these roles help develop necessary skills for the future. Having a leadership role at a young age allows you to build confidence and responsibility. Oftentimes young women do not get the opportunity to be in leadership roles because of how male-dominated the roles tend to be, especially in sports. At an all-girls school, we all have the opportunity to lead whether it’s in sports, politics, clubs, etc.

What do you hope other students at Walker’s take away from your leadership on EWAC?

I hope that students at Walker’s will see the importance of balancing hard work and fun through my leadership. Many of us forget that sports are supposed to be a fun experience as well as a competitive one. Learning to balance hard work and fun has not only improved my relationship with sports but my leadership skills as a whole.

What is one fun fact about you that may surprise people?

I fly for free because of my mom’s job!
