Favorite Rally Comm memory: There are so many that it’s impossible to choose! My first ever general meeting. Seeing Cal upset ranked Washington during Haas Lock-In. That game in particular a 2.5-hour rain delay, so I remember singing songs with the rest of the Committee and playing some intense volleyball and basketball games as we were waiting for the game to start back up. Cal won on a game-winning field goal to take the lead with eight seconds to go and I just remember the Committee going bonkers (myself included)! I can’t forget the first time I did Spellout at the Cal home opener in 2019 and road trips to Oregon and LA. But I’d be lying if I said Big Game 2019 wasn’t one of the best memories I will ever has as a Cal student and member of the Committee. Seeing Cal take the lead with just over a minute to go and racing onto the field at Stanfurd Stadium with my fellow Bears after clinching the victory is something I won’t ever forget.
Random fact: I’m a triplet!
What you’re most excited about for this year: I’m most excited to meet and get to know all of the new members of the Committee and help carry the incredible spirit and tradition of Cal and its loyal fans from 2019 into 2020! I can’t wait to lead Night and Noon Rallies and help create an unforgettable Big Game Week in November!
