PERSONAL: Daughter of Gino and Michele Campana ... Has three siblings: Ariella, Maurizio and Milana ... Majoring in business ... Has had leadership roles in FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), DECA and the Best Buddies Club ... Chose to attend Pepperdine because it "provides me the opportunity to receive an amazing education while continuing to compete in running at the NCAA Division I level. Upon touring the school I immediately declined all other offers and knew that Pepperdine was the place for me."
FAVORITES: Favorites include Hope Solo (pro athlete), Denver Nuggets (pro sports team), Where the Red Fern Grows (book), Transformers (movie), Awkward (TV show), Eric Church (musical artist), pasta (food) and soccer (sport other than running) ...
