About Athlete

Every day I wake up with a purpose to become better than the person that I was yesterday. I integrate this mindset into my sport, academics, and into the person that I am. Swimming has taught me how to manage my time well, delegating hours between school and my training schedule – has made me work harder as both an athlete and a student. It is my goal to become the best swimmer that I am capable of becoming and to be a part of a team where true team spirit and vigor is central to its values.

What makes you different?

I have been fortunate enough to balance the high demand of time and effort that swimming requires with other activities both sporting and social. This has enabled me to experience what life has to offer, while still being able to be competitive in the pool. It has given me the maturity to distinguish what is important in life, to maintain the balance, and still have passion for swimming.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Competing in college offers new perspectives and learning opportunities for me to grow as a person and to take my swimming to a higher level.

College Goals?

Academically, it is my goal to complete a degree in Organizational Psychology, thus fulfilling my dream of working in a corporate environment.

Swimming wise, the prospect of being a part of a team, training together, and travelling to other parts of the USA, is one that is very appealing to me.
