Personal Statement

    I want to go to college, earn a degree, and swim on the college team. Swimming in college will allow me to continue my passion for the sport, and I wouldn’t know what to do without it. I also want to compete at a higher level of swimming, so I can compete against other people who are as dedicated to the sport as I am. I love to push myself to my limits, and I enjoy feeling the reward of accomplishing my goals.

    I am very serious about the importance of practice - both attendance and effort.  I am known for not missing practice. I understand the importance of arriving early so I am prepared for practice. When it comes to meets I am very prepared. I know what events I am swimming and have a plan and goal for each race. I take how I did at the meet and utilize my coach’s advice after my races to make changes at practice.

    I also enjoy open water races. I did my first open water race when I was eleven. I have swam across the Chesapeake Bay twice and I am about to do it for the third time this summer. I have raced in the Atlantic Ocean where I was stung by jellyfish multiple times, but I didn't give up and I completed the race. I have even raced in New Zealand. I like open water races because they are different from swimming in the pool. They tend to be very mentally challenging because you have to continuously swim for an hour to two hours at a good pace.

    In addition to being very focused on my own swimming, I enjoy coaching younger kids and help share my love for swimming. I support my teammates and have good relationships with my coaches. I have been with my club team since I was seven which has allowed me to build relationships with my coaches. I am also very fascinated with the times and analysis of swimming.

    At school, I am currently taking all honors classes as well as an AP course. My favorite subject is math and I also enjoy science. The courses I take are very challenging but I am willing to accept the challenge. Since I am in these hard classes I must manage my time well especially because of all the time I spend at swim practice. I try very hard to work ahead and not procrastinate my work so I hardly feel overwhelmed.

    I am a hard worker both at school and in swimming. I do well at school and take challenging classes. I am able to maintain my schedule and balance my time with school, swimming, and any other activities I do.  Thank you for considering me for your swim program.
