Growing up I have always enjoyed being in the water. Swimming always seemed to come easy for me and my dad was a swimmer in college. So, I guess you could say I was born to swim. As my college years grow nearer, I have begun to picture myself at a school where I can excel in both the classroom and the pool. Being able to swim in college has been one of my highest aspirations throughout my years of swimming. I know I am ready to put in the hard work and dedication it requires to swim at the collegiate level. I am devoted to my academics and athletics. I have set lofty goals for myself and I am determined to achieve each and every one of them. I try my best to be a good team leader by encouraging my teammates everyday at practice and at swim meets. My closest friends are those whom I swim with everyday. We push each other very hard to do our very best all the time. I am always open to hearing how I can get better and I work very hard to drop time. I believe that I have been successful with my swimming because I enjoy it so much. I always look forward to going to practice and swimming at swim meets. Because of this it makes the hard work and the outcome more enjoyable. In the classroom, I am extremely dedicated to my studies. I am a rising Junior at Little Rock Christian Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas. I really want to attend a college where I will be challenged in the classroom with my studies and swim at the highest level possible in the pool. I have a very open mind when it comes to where I will attend college and I am welcome to all options. I hope to find a school with great academic opportunities to set me up for a great career. I am also looking to find a swimming program that will help me swim at the highest level possible. I truly believe that my positive attitude, desire to improve, and genuine love for the sport of swimming will benefit your swimming program. I hope you will consider me for your swimming program and thank you in advance for your consideration.
