I was born an aquaphile and feel lucky to have grown into a large frame ideal for water polo. I have a cool head, healthy work ethic, and strong ball handling skills from years of playing multiple sports. Lifeguard certification and camp counselor experience have developed my leadership, humility and collaborative spirit. The philosophy of the comprehensive IB Diploma I'm earning forces me to focus on critical thinking across disciplines and subjects with an emphasis on global education, preparing me to advance in multiple subjects as well as achieve athletic success. Someday I hope to feel as confident exploring uncharted lands as I do in the pool.
