Christine Cho’s everyday life is anything but calm and serene.
A junior majoring in economics at Harvard University, the 2008 Crescenta Valley High graduate's academic workload is exhaustive and her summers offer her little opportunity to recharge, as she just spent two months in Japan completing an internship.
Fortunately for Cho, who has been one of the top members of the Crimson women's golf team since her freshman year, an escape from the daily grind is only as far as the next round.
“Especially when things are really busy at school, just to be able to go away on the weekends and play a tournament and be away from campus and all you have to focus on is golf, it's really nice,” Cho says. "Even with all the pressure and the competition that comes with it, it helps a lot with dealing with school stress."
But while she always welcomes the chance to lose herself in the sport she loves, when Cho picks up a club, it's not just for relaxation.
