My goal is always to improve, and I want to find the program that will best facilitate athletic improvement, as well as academic improvement. I always take new ideas and suggestions to heart and do my best to incorporate them into my training and race stroke. Academically, I want to be challenged with learning new subjects and enhancing previous ones, as well as being pushed to interpret real world correlations with my coursework, rather than float along on basic, entry level classes. I have challenged myself throughout my high school career by taking eleven AP courses and one dual-enrollment college course(Engineering 102) while simultaneously balancing a rigorous training program with my swim club. I know that I can continue to thrive in both high level academics and athletics throughout college.
