Personal Statement

I am a 5'9" swimmer from New Castle, DE. I am a Sophomore on the William Penn High School varsity swim team. In my first two meets, I won first place in the 200 Free, 100 Free, 100 Breast, and 200 IM. . In the last year, I have dropped 10 seconds in every event and look to drop more time as the season goes on. My goal is to make state championships in two events by my junior year and swim at the collegiate level. My anticipated major in college is Business Administration/Music. I am pursuing a career in Music Production.

I am looking for an institution where I can find the right balance between the classroom and the pool. I would like to pursue a university with an outstanding academic reputation in the field of Business Administration Major and Music minor. Ideally, my athletic environment would be one where I could make an immediate impact on the team. Currently, I believe my best fit would be at the DII or NAIA level, although I will absolutely consider high academic DIII opportunities. Although those are the best fit right now, I will continue to strive for Division I times.
