Personal Statement

Swimming has been a passion of mine since I was very young. Parent-toddler lessons turned into private lessons. At age seven I was asked to try out for a local swim team by a coach, and from the very first practice, I fell in love with swimming laps, competing in meets, and cheering for my teammates. I cannot remember a time in my life when swimming hasn’t been at the forefront of everything I have done.

My passion for the sport of swimming has been matched only by my versatility in the water. I excel at all four strokes and consider myself an “IM” swimmer. I’ve been a strong contributor for age group teams (USA Swimming), summer town and private club teams, and high school varsity teams in both New York and Montana. I love being in the water year-round, and consider my swim teams to be like second families. Relays are incredibly fun for me, and one of my many strong contributions to the team.

My coaches describe me as a very “coachable” swimmer who is extremely open to correction and feedback, and who takes the time to help out and mentor younger swimmers as well. When not swimming, I will frequently be found on the pool deck cheering for my team and counting laps for my teammates who are swimming the distance events. I have an extremely strong work ethic and love to “leave it all in the water” at meets. I will pitch in at any meet, in any stroke, in any relay position. I stand out among other candidates not only because of my passion for the sport, but because of my resiliency. If I am knocked down, I will still be there to cheer on my teammates and to put my best foot forward.

Over the years I have won multiple awards and swimming honors, and have competed in championship meets at the town, state, and regional level in both New York and Montana, and hold several team, pool, and meet records. Swimming is the perfect sport for me because I love how it combines the best of a team sport and an individual sport all in one.

My current job as a lifeguard and swim instructor at our local town YMCA is personally fulfilling to me in many ways. I adore teaching the young children, and have already participated in one “save,” as I assisted in rescuing a young girl from drowning after only one week on the job.

I am looking for a college that can help me balance what is most important to me, my academics, and my true athletic passion. My dream is to swim in college for a Division III women’s swim team. I love the student athlete balance in Division III, and I’m currently interested in majoring in Political Science and/or Journalism/Media Studies. I also enjoy reading, going to movies, current events, and am an avid dog lover. I presently also play the viola in my high school orchestra and would love to continue to play music in college.

In short, I cannot imagine myself ever NOT swimming.  Chlorine and H2O are running through my veins, and I can’t wait to get to college and start contributing!
