This picture is of the lighthouse located on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina. Ocracoke is a 12 mile island that is part of the Outer Banks. The island is the most southern part of the Outer Banks. Personally, Ocracoke is special to me because my mom’s family is from there. I have many family members who still live on the island. Along with my family history, I have worked at the local surf shop Ride the Wind for the past two summers and have come to love Ocracoke even more than before.

Growing up, I had dairy cows and was involved in 4-H. I showed my cows at local and state fairs. I enjoyed time on the farm and made lifelong friends through 4-H.

I am from the Eastern Shore of Maryland and crabs are one of my favorite foods!

I grew up in Maryland so naturally, lacrosse was the main sport. I began playing in first grade and have continued to play. I am a senior on the UMW team. Lacrosse has always been a large part of my life and something I truly enjoy.
