GWYou: Natasha Akbarizadeh

A Bulldog Day: Track & Field Athlete Natasha Akbarizadeh is Focused on Future Opportunities


Natasha Akbarizadeh is a senior at Gardner-Webb University and studies psychology. Although she is a long way from her hometown in British Columbia, Canada, she doesn't feel so far away. The small-town atmosphere of Boiling Springs makes her feel right at home.



Her calm demeanor even in the heat of competition is what sets her apart from her peers, and it’s a trait she carries with her into the classroom. She plans to stay at Gardner-Webb to pursue graduate studies in Mental Health Counseling, and says she can’t wait to see what her future holds.
