"Being on the GW gymnastics team makes me feel confident. Not only have I learned confidence through performing, but also from my teammates. I have fourteen girls behind me in whatever I do, and knowing that gives me confidence in all of my endeavors. With the confidence I gained from my sport and team at GW gives me an advantage for taking on tasks after I graduate."
