SARANT ON ROWING AT UCONN: "I had wanted to be a part of the rowing world since high school and decided I would achieve this goal while at college. Yes, people told me I would not be able to, yes I'm short, yes I had no experience, but I did it, I embodied the passion. That's what rowing is all about; fighting against the current, exploding through that wall, pushing yourself to new limits, and thriving on the energy that passion awakens within you. The skills and lessons I have learned from rowing are not tangible or even, sometimes, explainable but those who have experienced this unique breed of passion understand a profound piece of you. Being a part of a group of women that are so extremely passionate about something while starting a new chapter of my life was as inspiring my first year of college as it has been in my last."
