I plan to take after my father and study in the field of Paramedic/EMT/Firefighting. I chose this field at a young age because I love to help people and watching my father do so was amazing. My father ran an emergency call, where a young boy had drowned and passed away; due to his inability to swim. From that moment, I was enrolled into swimming lessons and later my first competitive swim team. At age 6, no talent was really shown until I reached the age of nine and ten. After being the first age group athlete on Gulliver Swim Club to acquire a Junior Olympic time, I knew that this was the sport for me. From that moment forward, I continued to excel in swimming qualifying for my first out of state meet at the age of fourteen. At the age of sixteen, I qualified for my first ever State Championship representing my high school, Miami Palmetto Senior High. I also became the Captain of my High School team, and this past high school season was one for the books. The difference between myself and other recruits is that I am willing to put in the work and whatever it takes to be a leader and lead by example. I take this approach in the pool and out. I believe that there is always room for improvement and you need to always stay positive. My parents have have always taught me to work hard and believe in what I do. One of my coaches, Derek Gelber, used to always tell me that, "When someone see's you do it, it will motivate them to do it as well." Only one thing separates me and the other recruits, and its as my coach Derek Gelber would always say; "Do Your Job". I plan to do my job and thats swim and go as high and succeed as much as I can. I work just as hard in the classroom, as I do in the pool. I get my work done and do all I can to please my teachers within the classroom. I plan to do this in college and make my coaches, and parents proud.
