Personal Statement

My goal is to swim in college at a highly competitive level with a team I love and lead while receiving a great education. I can achieve this goal because my hard work does not stop. I am the first one to enter the weight room and the last one to exit the warm-down pool. I am the first one to enter the library and the last one to exit the classroom. I do these things because I seek greatness. And, I want to bring others to greatness as well. I want to use my opportunity as a collegiate student-athlete to inspire younger swimmers to reach for their swimming and educational aspirations, too. I plan to do so by leading by example. As a senior, I have been a leader in and out of the pool for years. By being an All-State swimmer, a four time school record holder, a conference record holder, maintaining a perfect GPA, and keeping Jesus Christ at the center of my life, I have managed to lead others and build a character that makes my friends and family proud. Without my friends, family, coaches, and, most of all, God, I realize that I could not be where I am today, so I strive to make my character something they will never be ashamed of. It is a job I love and do not wish to take lightly; therefore, being a leader is something I aspire to continue to do during my college experience regardless of the effort I know it will require. Continually, my hard work and dedication in the world of swimming are solely because I love to swim with all of my heart, and I cannot imagine a day I will not. I am motivated, and it comes from the feeling I receive after I have left it all in the pool. My motivation comes from never wanting to have regret about the effort I gave. For these reasons, I am an optimist. I know that if I give my all, good things are bound to happen. And this makes me different: I want to see my team succeed before I want to see myself succeed because I know that ultimately when my team succeeds, I succeed; I want to be a part of something extraordinary within the realm of swimming regardless of if I receive praise for it. I am different because I was born to lead, born to inspire. I do not believe life is a spectator sport. I believe if you want something to happen, you have to make it happen. I believe you have to want it more than you are afraid of it. And, I believe the same to be true about my collegiate swimming dream. I want to swim, and I am not afraid, nor have I ever been afraid, of hard work, so I will make it happen. I seek greatness, but more importantly, I want the competitive nature of my team and myself to be displayed in a way that shows true integrity. I want individuals to be able to look back at my time in this educational journey and believe that it was completed in the best way possible. Wherever God calls me to attend, I will be honored to represent that school because by doing so I will have attained my vision of competitively swimming at a school I love with a team I lead while becoming the intelligent woman God knows I can be.
