Known as "Joey" Miller
I don't want my college choice limited because I come from a single-parent household and Im only a B student. I want to be able to get the best education I can. I love swimming and competing. Being part of a swim team is like having a built-in family in college. I believe being on a swim team and having a common goal like seeking a Championship will make the transition to college easier for me.
I'm a poster child of success when it comes to kids with learning disabilities. I have learned to embrace my learning disability (speech and language delayed: I know, understand, and remember the material taught I simply cannot transfer that knowledge to paper like on a test; verbally everyone thinks I'm just shy). Because I will never test well, I simply have to excel in my actual work and capitalize on my strength strategies. I have A's going into Finals and come out with B's in the end. I have had an IEP through elementary school, and a 504 plan through high school. I'm a solid B student in a world that relies completely on testing. Repetition is one of my strengths and one more reason I swim. Swimming, I lead by example. I don't miss practice. I swim lights-out on relays, you can count on me!
I don't skip practice, I have/had personal trainers outside of my team practices. I try and get plenty of sleep, take vitamins, and try and surround myself with "healthy" people. I choose to be happy!
Being raised by a single mother I understand the concept that "it takes a village" probably better than most people. My goal is approximately 30 hours of community service each year. I am not a member of the Honor Society and therefore my service hours are completely self-motivated. I am active in my church youth group where my volunteer hours are divided up through church and community activities like "Briarfest", craft fairs and religious celebrations. I volunteer at the local Soup kitchen as well as local sporting events.
