My name is Andrianna Jacobs, but everyone calls me Andy. I am from Rochester, MN and I was a pole vaulter and Captian for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Women's Track and Field Team. I am passionate about making people smile, helping make a difference in the world, and understanding new cultures. I'm excited to be in Rome and ready to make the most of all my opportunities!
