What makes you different?
What makes me different is my mindset. I have a fighting spirit and I don’t give in that easily. I’m also a positive person and I love to cheer on my friends and teammates.
Why do you want to compete in college?
Competing in college has been my one biggest goal for years. I see this as a great opportunity to evolve, not only as a swimmer, but also as a student and as a person. In my opinion is studying and living in another country the best possible way to evolve and gain some new perspectives.
My main goal for my collegiate career is to participate in swimming at a high competitive level while gaining an undergraduate degree which will make it possible for me to apply to a good job in the future.
Anything else we should know?
I mostly spend my free time with people I love and can laugh with. When I have breaks from school I usually try to get away from the city. I often go to our country house where we take boat trips, go waterskiing, and play sports like tennis and badminton. If I don’t go to our country house we always go skiing or travel away from the cold weather’s in Sweden.
