Personal Statement

I started on a club team at the age of 5 and immediately fell in love with the competition. When I was 7, I started swimming for the Red River Valley Wahoos after moving to Grand Forks, North Dakota. The summer before my 7th grade year, I was moved up to senior group. This is when I really recognized the importance swimming has had on my life. I started High School swimming that fall, I was apart of JV for half the season before moving up to Varsity. I made state that year in the 200 and 100 freestyle, and ended up lettering. Since then, I have been a part of the state team and have lettered every year since. 

My 9th grade year, I competed in the 500 freestyle at HS state and ended up placing first. However, due to Covid-19, my training was interrupted. Upon returning to full competition in 2020, the mental side of swimming was made very apparent and I had to work to overcome it. Swimming has taught me about mental toughness,  how to be a team player, and many leaderships skills. I was very honored to be voted captain this year for the Grand Forks Central swim and dive team, and also to represent the RRV Wahoos as athlete representative for the North Dakota LSC. I was also selected to attend a leadership training trip through North Dakota this past summer. 

I am currently enrolled in multiple high school AP and Enriched classes. I work towards achieving academic goals, as well as my athletic goals. I have held a 4.000 all throughout high school, and currently have a weighted GPA of 4.139. I am also a member of Student Council, Health Occupations Students of America, and National Honor Society. All of these organizations have allowed me to volunteer and help out in my community. I was a part of the 2018 and 2019 North Dakota Zones' team and enjoyed competition at a higher level outside of North Dakota.  I'm looking forward to be a part of a college team to develop and expand my athletic and academic skills.
