Celeste's most memorable sporting achievement is racing in the Head of the Schuylkill Father/Daughter double and missing the bouys, crashing into another boat, and narrowly missing a bridge and only losing by .002 seconds (after penalties)!.. The most influential person in her rowing career is her dad, who rowed for Cornell, and was also her soccer coach (where he got a red card for his fiercely competitive spirit)... Celeste likes to draw, write (historical fiction and fantasy mostly) and read in her spare time... She plans to row in college and pursue a career in pyschology.
