Reno, NV - Class of 2022 Major: Government
Alison Kneiblher


Hey everybody! My name is Ali Kneiblher and I am from Reno, Nevada. Here at the Academy, I am on the women’s rugby team. In high school, I played volleyball, basketball, softball, and did karate for several years, but I am so excited to be doing something different. I am very happy with my decision to play rugby, it has been a fun sport to learn.

I am from the desert, so the weather here has been a change for me. I’m coming from a place that seems to always be in a drought to a place where it seems like it rains almost every day. I absolutely love the ocean, I didn’t grow up anywhere near it, but my family always went to the coast for summer vacations, and some of my fondest memories revolve around the ocean. Coming here had definitely been one of the best decisions I have made, even if it is difficult at times. I have no regrets.

I attended AIM in the summer of 2017, and ever since then I have wanted to come to the Academy. I applied early action and received my appointment somewhere around Thanksgiving that same year. That had to be one of the best days of my life so far. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at [email protected].
