This is my third year at Harambee and my second in the TC. You won't see me in the gym again until the second half of the year, because during the first semester I am studying and playing volleyball in Italy. So if you are in Men's 6 through 11 and have a question/comment or need me for something, feel free to contact me! I am always available, but if you have a question you would like to ask in person during the first semester, please approach Yvette :).
