Personal Statement

I have been swimming since I was eight years old, driving an hour one-way to practice everyday for the past 10 years. I get up a 4am every morning to practice and get home at 8pm after practice everyday. If I’m not at school I’m at the pool, I’ve given up school trips, hanging out with friends, and the majority of my free time for this sport. Swimming has always been the thing to get me through hard times and distract me from stress. This past year has been a major turning point in my swimming career. Around Thanksgiving I got Covid-19, and that put me out of the pool for months, I tried going back too soon and it almost gave me a heart attack. Being out of the pool for so long really made me realize how important swimming was to me so after I was fully recovered I really started hitting things hard. I doubled my practices and started lifting at a CrossFit gym, and in a couple months I finally started seeing the improvements I’ve always wanted. Over the summer I got fist in the 100 fly at Arkansas State Championship and qualified for junior nationals. It’s been a dream of mine to go to the Olympics, but that’s always been, well a dream. now that I’m only four seconds away from the trials cut in the 100 fly, it’s really motivated me to continue swimming at the college level. I’m expecting myself to drop even more time my senior year. When I do get into college I want to work my way to getting my PHD in Marine Biology and Biochemistry. I want to get involved in the research from my field of study as soon as possible, I’m looking for a school with a good graduate program I can work under. I am also looking for a team that pushes me to be the best that I can be and also build life-long relationships. Swimming is a part of my identity and something I plan to be actively involved in for the rest of my life.
