Four time age group sectional qualifier. Two time Most Valuable Swimmer for my club swim team. Age group zone swimmer.
I was warming up for a game at a rival high school this season and my ball rolled into the stands. A disabled teen girl picked it up and with her hands that turned in from what I learned later was cerebral palsy she tossed the ball awkwardly and hit it to me. She just beamed at her accomplishment I immediately gave her a huge thumbs up. The kids around her then recognized her. I could tell this really made her happy and it was such a small gesture on my part.
I have a younger brother with a disability and I realize how lucky I am to be blessed with my abilities. What is important in life is how we make others feel. That was a really good day for me.
I eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight. I want to be able to perform my best and my coaches recognize my healthy habits and me as having the best strength and stamina on my team.
I stay involved in my community by teaching young children how to swim and water safety. It makes me so sad when every summer I hear on the news how a child fell into a canal or pool and drowns. Very young children can learn to roll over and float on their backs so easily. I have always loved the water and was lucky to learn to swim early. I want to teach as many people as I can, young and old to be safe in the water!
