My name is Isabella Martinez and I have been a swimmer since the age of four. My love for this sport has always been a major part of my life, following me from elementary to high school. Swimming is something I am very passionate about and is something I have found to center me and bring me a sense of peace. A major aspect of swimming that has always been important to me is being a part of a team and community, cheering on the sidelines while my teammates compete is always a highlight of my season. My sense of sportsmanship and team leading is also seen through my extracurriculars and service along with my role in the classroom as a student. It is also seen in my goals for college, gaining bachelor degrees in both International Relations and Sports Management which deal with teamwork in every sense of the word.
