Sherman was a sophomore history major who loved running, foreign languages and making friends laugh, and wanted to be an historian one day, reports the New York Times. "She was just amazing," Deepika R. Chadive, 19, told the Times. Chadive, a fellow sophomore who played basketball with Sherman when the two were students at West Springfield High School, also said: "Not only was she very good, she was very spirited...Even if we were down 50 points, she would always give us a pat on the back." Sherman never seemed to have "anything bad to say about anyone," Chadive said. "She was always joking around and smiling. She was always trying to make people smile."
