"GW was the right choice for me because I have not only had the opportunity to be a part of an accomplished gymnastics team, but also the chance to live in one of the most exciting cities in our country. I truly believe that balance in life is extremely important, and being here at GW has afforded me that balance. Everything I've learned in the past four years, I will undoubtedly take with me in my future endeavors."
