I started swimming in fifth grade; what started off as a fun hobby has quickly became a passion. I spend almost my entire day in the pool training, lifeguarding, or teaching swim lessons; it truly is my happy place.
Swimming has given me some of my best friends, mentors, and memories. Swimming at a collegiate level would allow me to continue to make these lasting relationships while participating in my absolute favorite activity. I am a very cheerful and motivated person, I pride myself in being able to encourage those around me to do their best. I am focused in practice and always work my hardest. I have leadership qualities from my years as a girl scout and on student government. I am very involved in school and study hard to achieve good grades and a high GPA.
My times, technique, grades, and mindset will help me excel at the collegiate level. I am open to all options and am looking for a college that meets my athletic and academic level. I try to be a good role model for my teammates and siblings, while making my family proud.
