It has been great growing up in a family that has taught me the values of being patient, focused and hard working. Swimming, since I was four years old, has only strengthened my belief in what I learned from my family and has motivated me to have discipline and perseverance. I consider myself a smart focused swimmer that is goal driven, competitive and a passionate swimmer who has the versatility to swim all four strokes. My focus is to continually improve my level of performance and to compete at the highest level possible through extensive training, physical conditioning and technique improvement. My desire is to swim for a college program that will reinforce, encourage and train me to drive for excellence.
