How did you get your start in baton twirling?

I started twirling basically at birth. My mom teaches and has her own program in my hometown, Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ. It allowed us to become really close because she was my coach through middle school. Once I got to high school I started looking at twirling for college, and I knew it was for me. Competitive twirling is great, but twirling for your school is priceless to me.

What led you to Carolina?

I applied to a lot of schools that had twirling and the academic subjects I was interested in. But when I set foot on the Carolina campus, I just knew that I was home. I just loved everything about campus and the opportunities the University of South Carolina could offer.

Tell me about some of those opportunities.

I’m involved in a lot of different organizations. My freshman year I joined a service sorority, Epsilon Sigma Alpha, which is great because it allowed me to help the Carolina community and our main philanthropy, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, which I love. I was active in Preston residence hall and was a Preston ambassador. This year I became a U101 peer leader, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It is so much fun helping a group of freshmen, guiding them through decision making and showing them the way.
