Why Radcliffe? Radcliffe is a team beyond the water and beyond the boathouse. I am incredibly grateful to get to row everyday with teammates who are unbelievably smart, strong, and selfless in their dedication to each other and to be coached by the most inspiring and committed women I have ever met. The Instagram captions, coach bake-offs, and boathouse disguised as a castle are also contributing factors.

If rowers had a walk-out song, what would yours be? “Candyman” by Zedd
