Never give up, find a way to make it happen.


"When I got to Dartmouth as a freshman, I was the slowest girl on the team. So, I learned how to contribute to my teammates in other ways. When I didn’t compete in our cross country Ivy League Championships my freshman year, I supported my team in their Halloween-day race by cheering in a full snakeskin costume. I did the best I could to help my teammates conquer mean hills and brave opponents. In this way, running became and has always been the most fun for me as a team sport, despite it seeming like an individual endeavor." - Alexi Pappas


“I define beauty as bliss. As a runner, performer, and writer, I have been fascinated with happiness ever since my mom committed suicide. At four years old, I tried to comprehend how anybody could be so sad — and took it upon myself to become a beacon of happiness. I could not be more thankful for my admirable and brave dad and brother— my brother taught me how to shave my legs— but I did not grow into woman as my childhood self understood woman. Beauty was something I’d discover on my own.”
