Personal Statement

After having played years and years of soccer, lacrosse, basketball, and baseball, I pivoted to playing water polo for the first time the summer before my freshman year. Even though it was physically and mentally exhausting having to practice many hours a day on top of the homework I got (and still get) from the International Baccalaureate Diploma program, I immediately fell in love with the sport. I started my freshman year on frosh soph, having never played the sport before.  As a sophomore, I started on JV and Coach Dusty Litvak honored me with the "most improved player" award, then finished out the year starting on the LAWPC 16's red team where we won the Silver medal at Junior Olympics. As a junior, I was proud to make Varsity with so much competition for roster spots. Now, in club season, I am proud to be on the LAWPC 18's red team. Maybe it was my natural athleticism that helped me get so far, but I really think most of it was from grinding it out with the countless drills, swim sets, and plays that I was taught by the great coaches at AHS and LAWPC, especially Dustin Litvak and Danny McClintick. 

Looking ahead to my upcoming college years, I hope to find a program where I can contribute. And when I write the word "contribute", I mean in any capacity; whether I am a big scorer or defender, or even times when I cheer on my teammates from the bench. I believe that everyone on a team must perform their role at the highest possible level.
