“I am participating in the ACE program because I think it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will allow me to impact the lives of children and adults in South Africa while simultaneously developing relationships with Stanford and Duke student-athletes. I think that this experience will take me out of my comfort zone, challenge me to grow as an individual, and ultimately make me a better person, teammate, and student. I could not be more excited for this opportunity!”
