Personal Statement

Gymnastics had a great impact on me for 9 years. I was State Champion for 4 years in a row and a State Team Member for 2 years. I was on track for college until I fractured my back in two places. This injury took me out of competition for most of two years. During that time I learned how to deal with life's curveballs and focused on healing and helping my teammates by supporting and encouraging them in any way possible. Eventually, my doctors and I came to the realization that gymnastics was no longer an option for me and I decided to try diving in February 2016. I was in love after the first practice! I want to continue to dive for as long as possible and would love to compete at the collegiate level.

Three months into diving I competed for my first JO meet and qualified for AAU Nationals for both the 1 and 3-meter springboards. I placed right in the middle of both fields. I also competed for the 3-meter springboard synchro and my partner and I placed 5th. 

I have now been diving on our JO team for a year and I just recently competed my first Regional meet where I qualified for Zones on both the 1 and 3 meter springboards.

I competed in our Zone Championships at the end of June. I placed 9th on the 1 meter springboard with a 265.10,  12th on the 3 meter springboard with a 287.35, and 8th on platform with a 247.75. These scores qualified me for the USA National Championships on both the 1 meter springboard and platform. I am the first alternate for the 3 meter springboard. I missed qualifying on that event by 0.6 points. 

Right after Zones I unfortunately injured my shoulder on the platform. I went to Nationals in Columbus and competed on 1 meter springboard and platform. The outcome wasn't quite as I'd hoped but it was such a thrill to be there!!

I had an MRI right after returning from Nationals and found that I had a torn labrum. 

My shoulder did not completely heal on it’s own so I had surgery to repair the small tear in my labrum on January 8, 2018. The surgery went very well and I am expected to make a full recovery. I will miss the 2018 club season but look forward to returning as soon as possible! I am very excited to get started again and begin competing for club, school and eventually college! 

I would like to find a college where I can fulfill my dreams not only as a student-athlete but attain my educational goals as well. I know that I could bring a lot to your team. My years as a gymnast taught me teamwork, how to be a leader, mental focus, work ethic and how to deal with adversity. I'm not afraid of hard work and though I don't like to lose I also understand that through failure we grow and succeed. These traits would be a great addition to any college team and I know I have what it takes do to great things for your team.
