What made you choose Notre Dame initially?
I was recruited in 2010 off the bat of Notre Dame winning the National Championship, so it was a fantastic team and program. I loved the campus, the academics, and strong faith values. Overall, it was my dream school as a kid.
What were your highlights from Notre Dame?
The campus was great with a fantastic atmosphere where people love to be. The sports environment was amazing. In my recruiting class there were 12 other freshmen and we were all thrown into the team right away.
During the NCAA Tournament my freshman year, we were playing against Wake Forest. Going into this game we were not expected to win. Late in the game, my teammate played me a through ball, and I ran on to it and scored the winning goal to advance to the round of 16. It was a great moment to advance that far into the tournament with such a young team. My freshman year, I led the team in goals and points, and in my sophomore year I was second.
Another highlight was in my freshman year against Louisville in a Big East game, I dribbled from half and shot it in the upper 90.
Overall, Notre Dame was very community-centered. I loved my dorm; I had a great group of friends and the Golden Globe themed dances were so much fun!
