1 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED:
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
It has been an honor to receive the Gail Segal Elmore and Leonard Elmore Scholarship for 2014-2015 and my parents were also incredibly proud. I have found it challenging being a student-athlete as well as an Economics major however the scholarship has allowed me to fully focus on my golf and my studies in order to perform to my best in both areas of my life.
Why did you choose to attend the University of Maryland, what makes this place special to you and what is your favorite part of being a Terp?
Making the decision to go to University in America was a very big decision for me as it meant moving a long way from home, my family and my friends. It also meant choosing between my University oppurtunities in England and the University oppurtunities I had been given in the USA. However once I saw the University of Maryland my decision became very easy. Everybody I met including my team and the coaches were incredibly supportive and I felt like I could easily thrive in such a great environment.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I am always striving to make a positive difference in the world through volunteering. Every summer when I go back home to England I volunteer at primary schools (aged 4-11) across the South region to get children into sport. I believe that sport should play a bigger role in young children's lives and due to the rising popularity in technology children are often choosing their phone over a football. I have been completing over 50 hours volunteering every summer at schools/kids clubs for the past 6 years.
