presently volunteering with Special Olympics, teaching assistant at Most Holy Trinity Church, worked at Larchmont Yacht club as a camp swim instructor and gave private swim lessons (2 summers ),swimming at both the club and summer club level since age 6 and have been swimming Varsity HS level since 8th grade.
Swimming has taught me how to be disciplined both in the pool and out of the pool. It has been part of my day for so long I can't remember what it is like to not swim. Given the number of hours that I spend, I have learned to manage my time to ensure that I can get all my school work completed while leaving time to train both in the pool and out while trying to find time to get enough rest as well. My teammates are some of my best friends and would hope that on a college team I would develop the same types of relationships. I have heard from older teammates that college swimming is an amazing experience and I hope that I have to opportunity to participate.
My teammates have voted me to be the next captain for the HS swim team for my senior year. A couple of years ago, I had offered to assist one of the religious education teacher with teaching since she was have a difficult time physically. Also I will be competing in a national Math competition the first weekend in March 2017with four other students from my school I had heard about the competition and assembled the best team that I could. We are very exciting to compete with some of the brightest math students around the country and hope to win some awards as well.
Having a healthy athletic performance requires a student-athlete to plan appropriately both in the pool and out of the pool. I really do plan when I will eat, sleep, swim, study, and lets not forget napping. I look at my swim schedule to see when I have meets and plot those into my schedule first. Since most meets are on the weekends and they consume most of the weekend. Therefore, I need to make sure that during weeks when I have weekend meets, that I spend more time during the week get ahead with my studies. If I don't have a weekend meet, I tend to utilize the extra hours on the weekend to get a head of the school work for the week. This way I am one step ahead, and I am not cramming for school. During the HS season life is always pretty hectic. Since I wanted continue to swim club as well as HS, I needed to go to more morning practices with my club team so I could still attend the required practices and meets for the HS team. The fall semester is always my most time challenged season. But with proper planning, I have succeeded both in the classroom and in the pool. In addition, I make time for my friends on the weekends (when there are no meets).
Since swimming has been a big part of my life since the age of 6, I knew that I wanted to give my love for swimming back to the community. One of my aunts has Downs Syndrome and so I got in touch with the program directors to offer my time to the Special Olympics swim program. I love seeing how swimming can bring joy to all people even those with disabilities. I also teach swim lesson to children in the camp at the Larchmont Yacht Club over the summer. The summer of 2018 will be my second summer at the camp. I love passing my passion onto younger kids and getting them excited about swimming.
