I have been swimming competitively since I was five years old, and I love it. Whenever I am in the water, I can focus on improving my strokes and encouraging and working with my team mates. I always try my best at practice and work as hard as I can. Every year, I set specific goals to drop my times in each event and train towards those goals. Overall, I am very passionate about swimming and I want to continue swimming competitively as long as I can.
