During my undergraduate career I realized that there is more to life than school. I have found that extra-curricular activities are avenues to manage my stress while also being an enjoyable way to spend my time. Sports have been a staple activity throughout my life and have allowed me to build upon numerous competencies such as communication, teamwork, commitment to quality, as well as continuous learning. Living on the west coast, with the ocean and wilderness at my disposal, has allowed me to develop a passion for discovering my surroundings through exploration. Aside from physical activity, I enjoy experiencing different cultures and lifestyles by means of travelling and sampling local food (heavy on the eating).
