My pursuit is to find a college and water polo program that will challenge me intellectually and physically, while refining my leadership skills and making me a better person and teammate.
Four years ago I moved across the country and wanted to try a new activity as I had not yet found anything that I was passionate for. As I searched I came across water polo which seemed an unlikely sport in Colorado. It looked exciting as the game was fast, physical, intense team sport, and the players had my projected future build. After watching the recorded game I knew this might be for me. I searched on the internet and two club options appeared in the Denver metro area. It was meant to be. I started playing days after the moving van arrived in my new state.
Now almost four years later, I have been selected to three Mountain Zone Olympic Development teams, have best friends that are my teammates, and learned from coaches who believe in me and push me to be my best. I am not only a highly motivated player, I am a highly motivated person. I am currently enrolled in an Honors International Baccalaureate program at my high school and will have approximately 20 college credits by graduation. I am very involved at school on the varsity swim team, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and other leadership positions in my high school's clubs. In addition, I am part of a committee at my local Food Bank that is working toward better incorporating the youth of our community in volunteering. Finally, I am working with a local club to help start a water polo camp this Summer to introduce more kids to this amazing sport.
I love to be challenged and look forward to my next opportunities in my education and water polo.
