It's been a whirlwind six months since I began my adventure in US college sport. Adjusting from being a regular student from Auckland, New Zealand with a passion for hockey, to being a full-time student-athlete in one of the most competitive sporting environments in the world has been challenging, yet rewarding.
My journey at Belmont Abbey College started in August 2016 and I have experienced so much already, while developing my academics and sport to another level.
I've made so many new friends and pushed myself out of my comfort zone. Every student-athlete at college has a different experience, so I thought I'd share what mine has been like so far and give an insight into what the college lifestyle as a student-athlete is like.
