I have been a swimmer since the summer before I was in kindergarten. From the second I was in the water, I realized that swimming was the sport for me. For the past few years I’ve been looking forward to following my swimming career to a D1 school, and now I’m realizing that this is the time I need to start looking. I put the most work I can into every practice, meet, etc. and I will always do that. I am different from other swimmers because not only do I put all the effort into my swimming, but my school work too. I have had a 4.0 my entire life and plan to keep it that way. I never slack off on any of my work and know that work comes before play.
