I am excited to swim in college! It has been a dream of mine to swim for a team that will eventually allow me to continue my aspiration to swim in the Olympics. I have a huge passion for this sport, and am really excited to see what may come in the future!
I have been to several championship-level meets, with the largest and most recent being the Futures Championship meet in Santa Clara this past August. It was a life-changing experience, and only intensified my love for the sport. I train six days a week, 2.5 hours a day in the pool and an hour doing dryland each day during the school year. This summer we have transitioned into 10 practices a week as well as 45 minutes of dryland each day. I am a focused student in the classroom, pushing myself there as much as in the pool. I am a member of my school's NHS chapter, and am among the top students in my class academically. I am excited to be one of the captains of our HS team next year, which is a dream come true! I love encouraging and cheering on my teammates, and swimming has really opened that door for me, giving me numerous leadership opportunities that I wouldn't have had the opportunity for elsewhere.
