UWM women’s basketball captain leads on and off the court


So, I grew up in Manitowoc on a small family
farm and we grew up with 500 cattle. It was so fun. It taught me hard work and nitty-gritty getting
down in the mud. Moving to Milwaukee was definitely a lot different. The biggest city that I’d been to, other than Milwaukee, would be Green Bay. There’s a lot of different opportunities that
I didn’t have in Manitowoc, necessarily. Basketball brought me here and then knowing that I could double major, I could find different realms. I didn’t know what I wanted to study right off the bat, but I did know that I wanted
to try a lot of different things and that’s what Milwaukee allowed me to do. Balancing academics and athletics is actually easier than you’d think, because once you
have the rhythm down, it’s almost like you’re on an
engine. You’re constantly like, what do I have next? What do I have next? Non-prof IT is basically where an organization
or company wants something done in terms of their website or something tech-related. And we, as students, get to use that as a class. We work all semester along with them, hand
in hand, meeting them and coming up with how
to develop what they need for free. It helps them out, but it also gives us the experience to work hands-on. UWM changed my life in giving me a whole new perspective. Coming here away from my parents, away from
basically having other people to help me, I got to just be myself. I felt like I got a little bit of a glimpse
of what life is gonna be like. This has prepared me for what’s ahead.
