What makes you different?

At this level, in this sport everyone is dedicated and everyone is hardworking. What makes me different is focusing on the minor details that make up the fractions of a second needed to win a race and earn personal bests. Whether that be improving my reaction times off the blocks or taking on the right nutrition before a race, these are the details that make me an excellent choice for your team.

Why do you want to compete in college?

College swimming will give me the opportunity to continue my swimming journey, improving my times, learning from new coaches and experiencing competitive swimming in a new and challenging environment.

College Goals?

With a passion for economics and political science, I have a great desire to excel academically as well as in the pool through slashing personal bests. I am looking to develop lifelong friendships by being part of a great team, while contributing to the wider community in which the college is based.
