I want to be a college athlete because I enjoy the discipline swimming requires and being part of a team. As part of a team, I have a second family. Being in the pool calms me and allows me to focus on my goals. Being a college athlete would allow me to automatically become a leader among my peers. The hard work and dedication it takes to be an athlete, especially in swimming, will make me better prepared for the “real world.”
In the pool, I always try to have a positive attitude even when the sets get tough and everyone is tired and crabby. I try to encourage my teammates when they are not doing as well as they wanted to at meets. I usually lead my lane during practice and try to make the sets fun.
At school, I am the Vice President of the Gender and Sexuality Acceptance Club (GSA). I was a student representative on the panel that helped with the design of our new math and science building to include gender neutral bathrooms. I welcome new members to GSA and lead weekly meetings. GSA works to raise awareness of LTBTQ+ issues and to create an environment of inclusiveness within our school.
