"As a child my favorite classes were physical education and art. I chose to start my education at a local community college and once I received my associates degree I still wanted to pursue my education and play tennis. Lake State offered the Sports and Recreation Management major in which my interest in sports is complemented with the opportunity to expand my creative side as well. Here I am the student I envisioned, preparing to be the professional I want to be."
