My name is Samuel Postlewait. I am 14 years old and have been a swimmer on a club team for 7 years. I enjoy all aspects of school. I am an honors student and have a 4.0 GPA. My inspiration is Elon Musk. I’ve always looked up to him because of what he has accomplished and the crazy goals he sets. He has helped me through swimming because I too like to set ridiculous time goals and try to meet them to show myself I can do it.
My favorite classes are science and engineering. I hope to graduate with an advanced high school degree. My dream is to graduate college with an engineering master's degree and someday work in space exploration. Some hobbies of mine are biking and reading. I love reading since it's a calm and relaxing pastime. Biking is fun because of the thrill and workout you're getting at the same time.
In swim, my greatest achievement is making it to senior sectionals while I was in middle school. My strongest stroke would be freestyle. I’m also very good at back and fly. My breaststroke has improved over the years. I am a driven and focused swimmer. I love swimming because of the competition and the chance to improve. I look forward to swimming in highschool because I work well in a team and would like to go as far as possible. I want to swim in college because it's what I have been working for since I was 7 years old. I would be lucky to have that opportunity.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
