At age 10, I joined my club swim team. I enjoy the regimental workouts and the ability to compete both as an individual and as a member of a team. Through swimming I have discovered my competitive nature and need to push my limits in training. Through the sport of swimming I have learned how to cope with adversity and balance academic activities with training requirements. I am a firm believer in servant leadership and civil responsibility. I hope to swim for a program that strives to hold its student athletes accountable and one that promotes a positive learning experience both athletically and academically.
