Swimming is my way of coping with my ADHD and OCD, but it also happens to be a sport that I have become good at, over my many years of swimming. It is also something I enjoy greatly and permits me to prevent myself from having too much free time, as well as expelling extra energy so I can focus on my work. I also want to swim in college because competition has always been a big part of my life since I first started playing sports, and I have been pushed to compete by my parents, and I feel the need to continue this (without my parents) in college.
During difficult sets during practice I sometimes try to motivate people (this annoys some people so I have dialed it back significantly since my freshman year), as well as keep a positive attitude in my lane so everyone in it can succeed. This generally applies to sets where I try my best to be a lane leader (distance sets, fly sets, and some backstroke sets). On deck at meets, I try my best to support others (in good or bad scenarios), so that everyone feels included, as well as cheering for my teammates and being appropriate to give a good example for the younger ages.
Off the field I try my best to work alongside my classmates, organize study sessions for exams as well as projects, and to work my best to help groups work together so that they can achieve a common goal. Although sometimes I do struggle to do so, as I am sometimes outspoken by others, I try my best when the opportunity arises to take a leadership position.
To better my athletic performance, I generally try to eat healthy (balanced diet), attend as many practices as possible, and create a healthy balance between my school career and swimming career. I try my best to work with my teammates to better them as well as myself to create a healthy team environment for other swimmers. I make it a point to avoid situations where I may be exposed to drugs or alcohol (which can significantly hinder my performance), and try to be as responsible as possible to prevent my social and home life from interfering with my swimming.
