“The field hockey program of Delaware is well structured with a great vision, where I can be challenged and develop as a field hockey player, student and person. In daily life I am focused on achievements in sports and study and I will give all I have to achieve a goal for myself and for the team. At the same time, I also like social interactions with family and friends to enjoy life together. UD has a professional program that seems to offer all of these elements with attention to my development in sports, study and socially.”
