Swimming has played an active role in my life from the age of seven. It's taught me many valuable things such as sportsmanship, time management, perseverance, dedication, perspective, and keeping a positive mindset. In college I hope to continue my swimming career and push myself to do my absolute best every time I jump in the pool. Swimming in college will allow me to be a part of a team. In high school, my 200 medley relay team placed 6th in the state. That accomplishment brought me closer to my teammates as friends. I know that being apart of another successful team will help me build friendships that will last a lifetime.
