I have been swimming competitivley since age seven and it has been a part of my life from a very young age. I have gained so many valuable life lessons because of this sport. many of my qualities, such as cooperation, time management, toughness, and so much more, is because of my commitment to swimming. No matter what the practice situation may be, I always show up with a positive attitude and a smile. When it comes to school, I am constantly challenging myself to do more when it comes to course load and rigor. swimming plays such a vital role in my life and I cannot imagine a day without it. I truly believe that I will be a positive contribution to any team.
