In this post, Amber Aesoph, a Health and Human Physiology major from Souix City, IA, shares how her faith has an impact on her sport, as she as a member of the track and cross country teams here at the University of Iowa. Amber was also the female recipient for the Newman Center's endowed athletic scholarship.
"I went to a Catholic school all my life, so coming to Iowa and being able to have an outlet like the Newman Center to keep me grounded is something I'm super thankful for. My faith is a very important aspect of my life, knowing that there's so much more to who I am than the sport I play and the school I attend. Seeing old and new friends every Sunday at Mass makes me feel at home and reassures me that I'm right where I need to be." - Amber Aesoph
