Being accepted into a rigorous engineering program in my high school, really was the ignition to my high school career. This program is designed to challenge students who have enthusiasm for science, math, and/or technology by fostering students' passions and encouraging students to research ideas , develop, and implement those ideas into reality. I feel that this has allowed me to learn and grow skills such as time management, work ethic, leadership and character, needed to be a student athlete.
I started competitive swimming when I was six years old, and have loved it ever since. The sport has allowed me to grow as a person, and create friendships that I would have never found anywhere else. I believe that the dedication and perseverance I have learned to value, not only in swimming, but it my social and academic life. This has set me up to be successful at the college level. I am looking for a program that allows me to further research my passion of medicine and engineering, as well as being supportive of my devotion to the swimming world.
