I have been swimming since I was nine years old and previous to joining the swim team I was a gymnast. Once I jumped in the pool, I fell in love with the sport and knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my athletic career. I am a very competitive swimmer with dedication and a strong work ethic. I have been the captain of my high school swim team since my sophomore year. I try to lead by example as well as encouraging my teammates to succeed. I am focused not only on my workouts, but also on my nutrition to ensure I am healthy and at my best. I am very coachable and strive to be one of the hardest working swimmers and one of the hardest working recruits that you will find.
I also work very hard in school to maintain a 4.0 GPA as well as currently ranked second in my graduating class. I volunteer with a special Olympics program and find teaching special needs children how to swim to be truly rewarding. I am also a member of National Honor Society, Key Club, Chorus, and Sports Leadership Club.
I want to attend college where I am athletically challenged while obtaining my degree. I am open to all options and want to ultimately find the right college match at the highest level of competition possible. I hope to become a great role model for my peers and make my parents proud.
