My life has been influenced the most by my family. My parents as well as my two younger brothers helped bring sports into my life, whether forcefully or through our competitive nature, and I am forever grateful. My brothers and I gravitated to swimming during the summer to keep active, but somewhere along the way I grew to truly love the sport. While satisfying my want for competition and teamwork, swimming allowed me to maintain an academic focus and better myself both physically and mentally.
As a multi-sport athlete, I have strengthened my time management skills, discipline, and work ethic. I have gained the knowledge necessary to balance my time between a part-time job, a competitive varsity sport, and a rigorous academic schedule. All of these skills have allowed my growth as an athlete and a student, but most importantly as a person. For each of these reasons, I would be a great addition to your team!
