Gliding on the water an amazing feeling

For Lauren Estevenin, rowing is more than a sport. It's a way of life — something that helps her to more fully express herself. After many years of training and several competitions at the French national and international level, Lauren has won a full scholarship to Washington State University in Seattle. Here are the thoughts she shared with the Herald.

Herald: Why did you choose the sport of rowing?

Lauren: Because it's mainly a team sport. For me it's more fun to be with other people than being by yourself. As part of a crew, you have something important to do. They can't row without you. You're needed. I like to be part of a team.
