Personal Highlights

At age 12, I was a level 9 gymnast training 8 hour days and homeschooling. Once I decided it wasn't my passion for the long-haul, I was encouraged to dive but wanted to see what other sports had to offer. While diving casually 2 nights a week I also played club volleyball, ran track and CC and pole vaulted. It wasn't until Spring of my freshman year when I qualified for State Championships that it occurred to me that I could be really good at a lot of sports, or great at one. I focused only on diving for the next six months and found myself competing at 2019 Jr Nationals in PL and 3M. Despite the setbacks of 2020, I am motivated to be one of the top female divers in the country.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

Since the age of 5 I have been a competitive athlete. I am passionate about fitness and competing, always looking for opportunities to learn and I believe sport has shaped me into the person I am today. Having the varied background that I do, I believe I am only getting started in how far I can go in dive. College diving is "next level" and I know that is where I will thrive.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I believe in a "lead by example" approach to life. In the pool, I am hyper-focused and listen carefully after every dive for what I can do to improve. I encourage my teammates to do the same so that they reach their goals. Out of the pool, I work hard to be my best self. I see others around me cheating and I know they are only cheating themselves. In the long run, only those that work for what they have will be successful.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

Fitness is top of mind for me. I try to eat healthy and stay active so that I can accomplish my goals in the water. During quarantine, I ran and swam for whole body workouts and lifted weights to increase my leg strength in preparation for getting my 16-18 dives. Now that we are training again regularly, I lift weights on the side of club practice and have learned to love healthy food. I seriously crave oatmeal!

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

My sport schedule doesn't afford me a lot of time to do volunteer work though I help quite a bit with pool events. My older brother is a swimmer and I have timed at more meets than I can count over the years. I also dog-sit for neighbors and help teach swim lessons in our community pool over summer breaks.
