What was your first thought after winning TARC 19?

When we won nationals I did not believe it. It was crazy to think that we could have beat all the other teams.

How has the team grown over the year?

I think over the year our team members have gotten to know each other much better. This has allowed us to work better as a team.

What are you most excited to see in Paris?

In Paris I am most interested to visit the Louvre for the second time and revisit some of the masterpieces within

How does it feel to represent the United States of America on the International Stage?

It is very amazing and we are proud to represent the U.S. I also believe we earned it through our countless hours of hard work to get to this point.

What advice do you have for students interested in TARC?

TARC is a great experience and something you can not miss out on.

Are you more excited for cheese, bread, croissants or another food in Paris????

I can’t wait to try the traditional french buffet breakfast at the hotel!!
