Personal Statement

As a six-year-old child, I thought swimming was merely competing in one race, hoping to get to the other side of a pool. However, that all changed when I started looking around at kids that were faster and who had received ribbons for winning their heat. I started striving to get one of those ribbons! From these moments as a young child, I realized that I am a very competitive swimmer, and will push myself to the limit to achieve excellence in the pool.

As a freshman, I lettered as a varsity swimmer and broke my high school’s freshman 50 breastroke medley relay split record. At 5A high school state championships, I was the second-fastest freshman in the state in 100 breastroke. During long course season, I finished 8th in 100 breastroke and 10th in the state for 200 breastroke, which is a strong showing for a rising sophomore that is competing with seniors and freshmen in college. In addition to being competitive in the pool, I am also competitive in the classroom. I know academics are as important as swimming fast when you are trying to get accepted into strong swim programs in college. I am currently ranked in the top 10% of students in my grade while enrolled in all honors and advanced courses.

Academics and swimming are very important to me but they are not my only focus in high school. I am a dedicated musician and play tenors in my high school’s marching band, play percussion in Wind Symphony and have been selected the past 4 years into the Cherry Creek Honor Band. I am also very active in Student Government and a volunteer swim coach for Special Olympics of Colorado. I am optimistic that my diversity in sport, academic excellence, music and community service will allow me to be better prepared for college and help me excel as a student-athlete at the next level.
