I have to start off by saying that I truly love swimming. During COVID, this was very clear when the access to the pool was taken away. I can't imagine my life without swimming, and I am very excited at the possibility of swimming in college.
My swim journey began when I was 6 with swim lessons. My parents would soon realize the spark those lessons started when I asked them "ok, when do I get to race"?
I would have to say that my competitive nature has been a driving force in my swimming career, always pushing myself towards the next goal. I am a consistent, hard working swimmer in both practice and meets. I have been blessed to be surrounded by terrific coaches that have provided me with the criticism and encouragement I needed to continually improve. I am an exceptional all around distance swimmer who enjoys the strategy of long distance racing, both in the pool and in open water. I thrive in adversity, and have the ability to bury myself to reach my goals.
I am looking for a school that has the flexibility to pursue multiple majors and that has a swim team that will challenge and support me as much as I will challenge and support them.
