I started swimming at the age of seven because my mother wanted me to have that life skill. From there, I fell in love with the sport. Unfortunately, my community does not provide a lot of opportunities for competitive swimming, but through my perseverance, commitment, and aspiring attitude I was able to reach my goals. I was also able to reach certain times that qualified me for the Iowa Zones team, Iowa All-Star team, club state, club Sectionals, and the Carroll high school state team over the years. I hope to find a college that fits me not only academically, but also athletically. I have learned through this sport that I am competitive, goal-oriented, and a leader in and out of the pool. I believe that I would make a positive impact on your team and I look forward to meeting you!
