This is Michigan
“Here at Michigan, Olympians coach me. Nobel Prize winners lecture me. I eat lunch with All-Americans. In the athletic training room, I sit next to Big Ten champions. I meet with prize-winning authors during their office hours. I take class notes next to American record-holders. I walk to class with members of national championship teams. I open doors once opened by Oscar-winning actors, former Presidents and astronauts ... it's all in the day of a Michigan student-athlete.”

My experience at Michigan changed my life. Academically and athletically, the coaches and support staff at Michigan make it their mission to spread success to all student-athletes. Each time I raced while wearing the Block M, I was reminded of the bigger picture. Michigan helped me grow into who I am today. Being a part of the cross country and track teams taught me how to be a better athlete, teammate and friend. I watched my teammates win Big Ten Championships and put in the hard work to claim one of my own. I learned the ins and outs of my sport, which led to me securing a full-time position as an associate producer with Flotrack. I recently covered a race in which the Michigan women's team competed; I felt overwhelming pride and joy watching them compete in the Maize and Blue and was reminded of the best four years of my life, spent in Ann Arbor.
The opportunity this university provides its students is unlike any other. Being a part of the Michigan softball team has not only created lifelong friendships, but also skills I will use in my future as well. I've learned the meaning of being relentless in all aspects of life, the definition of hard work and what it takes to get what you want, all of which will help me succeed in the near future. Michigan has prepared me for all areas of life.
All of the unique experiences that I’ve had over these last few years have helped to shape the person that I am today. Getting to attend this university, travel the country with my softball team and just getting the experience to be a student-athlete has taught me several things. It has taught me how to manage my time, how to be a leader on a team, how to work with a team and how to make the most of every opportunity I get.
The support I have received at Michigan has been amazing. Every time I walk into the training room or my coaches office I feel like there are people there who really care about making me into the best athlete I can be. The resources that are available are incredible. I have been able to pursue a chemical engineering education along with my athletic career which is something that I could have not done at just any school. I have had help putting together my resume and finding an internship and know there are numerous other resources available to help me in any other aspect of my life. Being on a team at Michigan has allowed me to be surrounded by people who you can't help but be your best around. They are smart, hard working, incredible people and being around that quality of people every day inspires me to be the best I can be.
