German National Youth Champion 100 Backstroke, 200 Backstroke (2019)
I am a German/American. My father is German and my mom is from California. I have enjoyed attending an international school and being around people from so many different places. I am confident in new situations and enjoy meeting new people. I am positive and personable and enjoy being in situations where I can take the lead. I am also good at listening to others and compromising. I am often the one motivating others on my team and in my other relationships. I am organized and resourceful. I also respond well to constructive criticism.
I want to go as far as I can as an athlete. I can't imagine life without swimming. Swimming is not only the sport I love but also an outlet and space where I can have a single focus. With swimming, I get clear results and unlike some other areas in life, you get out of it what you put in. I am also keen to be part of a college swim team and the comradery that comes hand in hand with that.
I am always motivating my team members. Swimming is a tough sport with early morning and afternoon training. It can be easy to not put in 100% when you're tired. I'm always encouraging my team members to push themselves which in turn motivates me. I swim not only for the sport but also for the team comradery.
As a student-athlete, I'm balancing a difficult academic program as well as 5 hours per day of training. I make sure I'm eating healthy and getting enough sleep. I'm also managing my time during school to ensure I keep up with work. Swimming has always been a good outlet for me and I find I have more focus for academics as a result of regular swim training.
As part of the IB Diploma we have Community, Action and Service. I have done a variety of activities including creating fundraisers for our sister school in Nepal (Shree Mangal Dvip School). We support 4 students with their tuition at the school and I helped with fundraising events including a coin drive. In addition, I have set up clothing donation boxes around the school and promoted this to support some of the charities in our area that support refugees.
