In February of 2020 I placed 2nd in MD State Championships and 3rd at 2020 Metros (MD, VA and DC public and private schools).
In February of 2019 I placed 6th in MD State Championships and 9th at 2019 Metros.

I'm honored to have been selected as a 2020 National High School All-American and Washington Post All-Met Honorable Mention Team member.
I'm one of 4 siblings and I love traveling to different colleges with my National Team.
One of my favorite memories was a 10 day dive training trip to Scotland & Edinburgh.

Diving has been my passion since I first stepped on a diving board when I was 6 years old. I can't imagine it not being a huge part of my life. I'm excited to be a part of building a legacy and having the opportunity to represent a first class dive team for the ideal college. I'm a team player, I'm competitive and I want to keep working on a national level. In addition to my area of study, diving in college is very important to me. I am enthusiastic about diving and would rather be on a diving board than just about anywhere else. That's where I've felt at home for the last 10 years. I am looking for a program where I can make a valued contribution to the team, and build a camaraderie with my coach and teammates, while I continue to grow and mature as a person and a diver.
I’ve come to realize that as an accomplished athlete, I am always in a leadership role, whether it’s an “official” one or not. Some of the best advice I ever read was, “Don't be afraid to be a leader. Sometimes, you may need to be a follower. Never, ever, ever follow, when you know you should be leading!” Over the years, I’ve grown to count on this advice in so many situations, on and off the athletic field. Every time I walk out the door, my mom says to me, “Remember, someone is ALWAYS watching”. I’ve heard this statement hundreds of times but it’s SO TRUE. You are always being watched and you never know how your actions may affect someone else. I’ve always tried to set a good example, because I know that the best leaders inspire not only with words, but with actions. I’ve been on the same travel soccer team for the past 5 years, where I’ve been voted Captain by my teammates for all of them. I’ve also been a starting defender on my varsity soccer team since my freshman year. But my real passion is diving. As a freshman on the varsity dive team, my Coach told me that because I train every day, I didn’t need to come to the 5am practices – but I LOVED GOING … I wanted to be ALL IN with this team – I believed that it was important to create a strong sense of TEAM - so if they were coming at 5am, I was too. One of my favorite parts about the practices, was the opportunity to coach my teammates, which allows me to really help guide and inspire other divers through my enthusiasm and passion for this sport.
I have been training 5 days a week for the past 4 years. As a travel soccer player and a nationally ranked diver, staying in shape is extremely important to me. Physical athletic performance comes through commitment, hard work and patience as a member of the Montgomery Dive Club with training at a high level. We work on nutrition, yoga, cardio, flexibility and strengthening exercises on a weekly basis. In 6th grade, I was diagnosed with ADHD & a learning disability, however, with the help of psychological assessments, psychotherapy, medication support, and dedication, I made great improvements and I currently have a 4.0 cumulative GPA, and a 4.5 weighted GPA. As I entered my freshman year, I began having some mental performance issues. I have benefited from working with a clinical sport psychologist and sticking to a regimented routine. Our work has focused on improving executive functioning tools, improving attention to detail, mindful focus strategies, and improving my self confidence and self-esteem. These monthly meetings and my commitment to mental training have played a key role in helping me to achieve my goals. I believe that in order to perform at a high level an athlete must learn ways to devote time to their mental preparation as much as they do to their physical preparation. So this relationship has been very important to me and has helped me to create some structure and strategies both academically and athletically.
As of the end of my Junior year, I have 287 Student Service Learning hours. Volunteering with the RHS Ambassador program has been a valuable experience that has allowed me to get involved in many different things and to meet lots of diverse people along the way. As a “Best Buddy", being able to work with students with special needs, has been enlightening, to say the least. I’ve learned patience, compassion, empathy and I’ve gained an awareness that we’re all different, but we all have great things to offer! Above all, I’ve achieved the satisfaction of making some awesome friends and encouraging others to succeed and not be afraid to try new things.
