Row New York taught me how to grow both as an athelete and as a student. I was just 16 when I heard of Row New York and my teen life was about to become so much more cooler. The girls in my boat became my sisters (look at us still getting medals), my coaches became teachers and mentors, and the organization became my inspiration to do more. Ten years later, I am part of the coaching staff for the Adaptive Team (where my younger sister rows too!) and I cannot be prouder of all of my rowers! They push me to run the extra miles for Row New York!
