About Me

My name is Dana Backlund. I am an Oregon State University Alumni (sounds really weird saying that). I studied Exercise and Sports Science and graduated in 2016. I was a volleyball student-athlete for 4 years.

I am originally from Wildomar, California and moved to Gainesville, Florida right after high school to go to the University of Florida. After almost 2 years there, I transferred to Oregon State to finish up my schooling and volleyball career with the Beavers.

I decided to start this blog because I wanted to share my story and thoughts with other students (athletes or not) of all ages. Whether you are finishing up your college career, just beginning it, or still trying to decide where yours will take you, I want to encourage you and share with you the various experiences that I have had. Whether you find your identity in school, sports, sorority, relationships, etc.it can be taken away at any moment.

So enjoy it, take advantage of it, and just know there is  Life after the Dream.
