What are you most looking forward to this year?
This year I am really looking forward to a normal year (hopefully) in the classroom, and on the soccer field. I’m also excited to spend a lot of time with friends and family, and to go to other Cobber athletic events to cheer on friends.
What is one of your favorite memories from your time in Cobber sports?
One of my favorite memories from Cobber sports was when we played St. Thomas my sophomore year. I had just transferred from there and there was a weird tension stepping onto the field to play against my former teammates and coach. I had so much adrenaline that whole game and we played a tight game with them into overtime.
What is one of your favorite memories from your time at Concordia (non-sports related)?
Off the soccer field, some of my favorite memories would be from girls’ nights with my best friends. From game nights in to study dates at ISC, we always end up laughing so much. I had no idea the incredible people I would meet at Concordia.
What is one of your favorite classes you have had at Concordia and why?
One of my favorite classes was Tax Accounting with Professor Twedt. Although this was a tough course, he is a great professor and I learned so much from his classes.
What advice would you give your younger yourself when you first moved in to Concordia?
I would tell my younger self to relax a little bit more. Transferring to Concordia two weeks into the fall semester was very stressful, but everything worked out way better than I could ever have imagined.
