Jeanne Westney
6-3 | MB | So.
Washington D.C.
Major: Biomedical Science

Why did you choose UCF?

JW: I chose UCF because I love the environment it provides. The people and the campus were like no other place I visited. As soon as I came for a visit people were nothing but genuinely welcoming. And the leisure pool doesn't hurt either.

How do you want people to remember you at UCF?
JW: I want people at UCF to remember me as being ambitions and driven, but also down to have fun: never too serious.

What is your favorite thing about campus?
JW: My favorite part about campus is Lake Claire. I love taking my dog, Milo, out to the lake to kayak when I have time.

What is your best UCF memory?
JW: My best UCF memory is when the team was in Tulane and we were allowed to have good food for once.

What is your favorite sport other than volleyball?
JW: I like to watch basketball. It's really the only other sport that I really know what's going on.

What is your favorite pro team (Any sport) to watch?
JW: I honestly don't really watch sports

Who is your role model?
JW: My role model is my grandpa Westney because he overcame incredible odds to reach his success.

What is your favorite food?
JW: Chocolate cake

What is something that people might be surprised to know about you?
JW: I have service pit bull named Milo who goes with me everywhere: Class, study hall, to the store

What is the best advice you have ever received?
JW: "Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn't change anything. All it does is steal your joy and keeps you very busy doing nothing."
