Personal:
Born May 6, 2000 in Amsterdam, Netherlands… Daughter of Baptist and Jennifer Knaven… Chose the University of Denver because she was able to instantly connect with Denver and the school was everything she was looking for; in addition the swim team was very welcoming and the coaches are supportive, motivated and invested in the team… With her interest in biology and her love for writing she hopes to become a scientific journalist.
