SISU October Player of the Month: Anna "Tim" Timmis
Updated: Feb 13
She may be small, but she's mighty!💪 Now well into her 3rd semester on the team, Tim has proven her place on this team as one of our best wings. She's always putting in 110% into her tackles and putting the pedal to the metal when sprinting down the field. She's one of the the hardest workers out there and a comedic genius! So it's time we learned more about Anna "Tim" Timmis!
Anna "Tim" Timmis
Bloomfield Hills, MI
Environmental Engineering with a minor in Energy Science and Policy
How long have you been playing?
I ran track and cross country in high school and missed the fun of being on a team, but I wanted to try a new sport. I'd heard good things about rugby, so I went to my first practice just to check it out, and I immediately fell in love with the sport and the culture surrounding it. Joining the team has been one of the best decisions I've made in my time at Michigan - I've learned a lot, met some of my best friends, and grown as an athlete and a person.
In 5 years, what do you see yourself doing?
Hopefully either working as an engineer for the EPA or attending law school. (& still playing rugby!)
Favorite place in Ann Arbor?
The fountain by the Dude on North Campus - when it's nice out, it's a gorgeous place to study.
Favorite memory at Michigan so far?
My favorite memory is probably the drive down to Nash Bash in Vicky's car last semester - we drove down this scary-looking back road while blasting Hannah Montana songs and singing along at the top of our lungs.
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
My mom - she works hard at everything she does and cares deeply about her family, friends, and patients.
If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be?
"Autobots, roll out. -Transformers" - Bria Donnell
Favorite food or guilty pleasure?
Bopping to One Direction
Best class you've ever taken at Michigan?
ENVIRON475 (Environmental Law) with Noah Hall - it made me realize that I want to work in environmental law and policy, and it was really eye-opening to hear from Prof. Hall about his experiences working with the government and leading the prosecution for the Flint water crisis.
Any hidden talents?
I can peel a clementine in one piece in like 3 seconds (this took years of practice)
Brunch or linner?
Barbecue sauce (as a sidenote, mustard should be illegal)
