Why Hamilton?: I choose Hamilton College for many reasons including it being a small school. I spent 14 years at a small private school and was able to excel in the close knit environment offered. Another big thing that caught my eye was the open curriculum. I loved the campus when visiting and all it had to offer. Academically and athletically I was pleased. I loved the coaches and the program. overall thought it was a great fit and I place where I could thrive.

Favorite Past Sports Memory: My favorite past sports memory was playing for the U19 Israeli National team. Being able to put on a jersey with ישראל (Israel) across the front was a true honor, but it was so much more than just the jersey. It was about the bonds made on and off the field, it was about building up the program, and most importantly it was about connecting me to my roots. I feel so humbled and blessed to have had the chance to represent Israel.

Who is your role model?: My role model would have to be Gabby Douglas because of her grit and determination. Gabby grew up with nothing and started teaching herself how to practice gymnastics. Her will to move away from her family to go after her dream was always something that inspired me. I use her perseverance as a personal motivation.
