Megan Jastrab Blog: The Balancing Act

Junior world champion on juggling racing and college life.

Before my first day at Milligan College in Tennessee, in the Fall of 2019, I had only been in the US for about five days, as I had just returned home from junior Track Worlds in Germany.

All went smoothly for the first week college, learning where everything was on campus, buying books, and having a limited workload with mostly only syllabus readings (you know the drill). Fortunately, I already had completed two semesters of college at Mt. Sac in California, and I was more-or-less prepared for what I needed to do related to college.
