Personal Statement

Swimming has shaped my life in a variety of ways so far. From being a good teammate to having metal toughness, swimming makes me a better person inside and outside of the pool. I have been fortunate enough to attend a private school called Columbus School for Girls, where I am challenged by not only my coach but my teammates as well. I have also been lucky enough to have my head high school coach as my head club coach; this has pushed my relationship to be stronger with him and always know that there's a point to each process. Through my high school season, I have some important highlights that include: 1) dropping 3 seconds from my personal best of freshman season (from 1:10.37 to 1:07.47) resulting in a sectional cut and almost qualifying for the state meet; 2) CCL Champion in both the 200 Medley Relay and 100 breast; and 3) learning the values of a good team atmosphere and being able to push myself and my teammates while still enjoying the sport I love. 

In college, I would like to pursue the medical field, along the lines of nursing. Although I want to be part of a competitive swim team, I also want to be pushed in my academics. I wouldn't just be a good candidate for the swim team, but for the school as a whole; with my work ethic, determination, character, and experience I will be a positive person who represents the school well. The perfect college team for me would be like the one I compete on with my high school. Everyone lifts each other up even if they're your biggest rival, We bond with each other so we aren't just "swim buddies", we're a family, but most importantly we get pumped up for every meet even the small ones cause those are the ones where we have the most fun together. I am different from the other candidates because I have more to offer than just swimming. I can be competitive in academics and have characteristics that will build the team together. With these attributes, I believe that I can have a positive influence on your team! Thank you for taking the time to read this.
