Major- Dental Hygiene
When did you start running?
I actually have never done cross country before, I have been a soccer player my whole life. I’m very excited to try something new! I look forward to trying cross country out for the first time. I think it will be a great opportunity, and an awesome experience.
How do you balance academics and athletics while here at UMA?
I transferred from Mount Ida College to UMA this past year. I did play for the women’s soccer team at Mount Ida College. Therefore, I know how challenging it can be to balance school and play a sport at the college level. It is extremely important to stay on top of your academics to be able to play the sport you love.
Why did you pick UMA?
I decided to go to UMA because they have an incredible dental hygiene program, as well as many others. UMA offers majors that a lot of schools in Maine don’t have. The faculty and staff at UMA do a really well job at helping students succeed and supporting students every step of the way.
Faith has been an amazing addition to the women's cross country team this season. She has jumped head first into a new sport and has utilized her athletic ability and work effort to excel so far this season.
