Forever the team player, I switched from varsity swimming to varsity diving in August 2018. My high school team graduated all but 1 diver after my freshman year on the team. Seeing an opportunity to earn crucial points for our team, I accepted the challenge! Early on it was not without its smacks - but I loved it! At that time I also joined the Full Out Dive Club year round. An equal mix of my hard work, dedication, courage and my coach’s instruction allowed me to keep pushing past the next “hurdle.” There is nothing like getting to ‘ring the bell’ after nailing a new dive! I have competed in AAU meets and have just completed my 2nd year as a varsity diver – making sectionals and I was awarded Most Improved on my high school Swim and Dive team!
I am looking to further my education at an institution that not only has a wonderful graphic arts and photography program, but also will give me the opportunity to earn a spot on a dive team. The thought of learning both in class and in the pool as I embark on the next phase of my life really excites and drives me.
