Why did you choose this school?
    Haverford College offers a unique combination of characteristics that create a great fit for myself and my aspirations. Within my college search, Haverford was the perfect combination of high academic vigor, small class size, location, welcoming community atmosphere, modern facilities, competitive athletics, and a large squirrel population. In addition to the strong academics offered, the soccer program is highly competitive in highly regarded conference.
Reflections on high school career:
            I have had to work extremely hard throughout my high school career to achieve success in both athletics and academics. The Methacton Girls soccer program has been a wonder experience that I would not change at all. I have developed life long relationships through soccer in addition to learning valuable skills including time management, work ethic, and leadership. None of this would have been possible without my wonderful coaches, teammates, and parents whom I can not thank enough for the endless support and laughs.
