Gabrielle O.
Australia Women's Lacrosse

Not many people can say they traveled to Australia let alone play a sport that they love! I was able to meet so many amazing girls during this trip which made it that much more enjoyable and I had the chance to play lacrosse in Australia which many people would never do! I was so nervous and afraid but when I thought about it, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I have some of the best memories from this trip and I would do it all over again if I could.
