I grew up in St Andrews, so I played a lot of golf. Tennis was just fun at first. But I reached a final when I was 10 and realised I wasn't bad. I came to St George's School for Girls in Edinburgh, where Tennis Scotland had opened its tennis academy. That was a big step.
They set up the tennis programme and work the education around it. We miss a lot of classes, so the teachers work very hard to support us. I got four Highers last year.
When I heard about scholarships, in the US, I thought they sounded great. They play every day and have matches with different colleges at the weekend. It was hard to get accepted. Sarah was brilliant. She helped me get into the University of Iowa. I liked the coaches when I spoke to them.
You do general education in the first year at US universities, so I don't choose which subject I study yet.
You play a lot of tennis. I'll enjoy the whole team thing, with everyone supporting you. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I like someone telling me to stick at it and I'll get it right.
I am nervous going over to America on my own. But I'm excited about it as well. I would like to go on the pro circuit eventually, if it turns out I'm good enough.
I had tennis classes when I was five but hated it. I started playing again and enjoying it when I was eight. Andy Murray's mum offered to coach me. After Highers at Dunblane High, I took a gap year to concentrate on tennis. I ended it ranked fourth for juniors and started thinking I could go to the States.
With Sarah's help, I emailed 30 universities and got five offers. I chose the University of Virginia because I liked the campus and the team. It's been a great experience - very intense. Sport is so big here. The stadiums are massive and everything is so professional.
Balancing studies and sport is hard. We have lectures and discussions from nine until two, then tennis practice and training from two until six. I have two years left to see how good my tennis is - then I'll decide. I would like to play after college, but it's difficult to make it as a pro.
At college you're in a team with eight other girls. When you see them doing it, you believe you can too. It's so different from playing individual tournaments. You all support each other. I really like that.
