Experienced or Walk/On: I am an experienced rower

Why did you start rowing: I started rowing in my freshman year of high school at my mom's request and fell in love with the sport, after a while, it was one of the only things I liked about school and pushed me to be successful so much that I was awarded for sportsmanship in my junior year and kept me in honor and merit roll throughout high school.
