I've always had an interest for being in the water ever since I was little. Participating in competitive swimming was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Not only is excelling in swimming important to me, but I believe having great character is implemented into being a great swimmer as well. I strive to not only be a hard-working swimmer and student, but to be a well-rounded person overall. I would like to continue my swimming career in college because I see a longevity in this sport, and I want to be able to push myself as far as I can with it. Moreover, I am dedicated and ecstatic to see how college will help me get even closer to achieving my ultimate goals, athletically and academically.
