The Road Ahead
After her family moved from California to Elizabethtown, N.C., Hannah was recruited to play tennis for Guilford. She was immediately drawn to the supportive atmosphere on campus during an Open House, something she says you can’t find at larger schools. The built-in friendships on the tennis team made a big impact on her, too, especially early in her college career.
“All of the girls are important to me,” she says. “I felt really supported by them even when I was struggling with different things my first year. They were really there for me, and we had just met, so I didn’t expect them to be there, but they were.”
Because community is so important to Hannah, she has also been involved in student government at Guilford for the past two years. She started when the board was looking for a marketing chair and was later elected president. “There were a lot of things going on at Guilford at the time, and I wanted to support the voices that needed to be heard,” she says.
Yet Hannah’s true passion at the moment is her bus project.
“I could talk about it all day,” she says. “Even my friends who have known me for a long time will say, ‘This is definitely something up your alley, but I didn’t think you’d actually go through with it.’ Then I send them a picture of the bus in my backyard and they're like, ‘Whoa!’”
