My TSU experience has being a blessing. It has given me many opportunities to grow as an athlete and woman. Also, it has given me the opportunity to play the sport I love. I love that TSU has given me a family away from home and it has given me the full HBCU experience, which I love too. We appreciate the support from donors and promise to continue to work hard to bring a title back to TSU.
