I received "Most Improved" after my 10th grade swim season.
I love everything about the sport. Both the idea of swimming and the team aspect. I love meeting new people and think it would be an easy way to make long lasting friendships and have a support system to go to during tough times. I believe it could be my family away from home as my high school team has always been. I also love swimming, the rush right before the start and the cheering on deck. I really want to see where I could be in a few years since I have been improving so much in the past year.
I am part of an student athlete leadership program that my school's athletic director created. Although my swim team doesn't allow underclassmen to become team captains, I've have done my best to make sure that all swimmers feel welcome on our team. The way that school sports were organized due to COVID, led to about half our team being new girls. I found myself helping girls figure out rules of the pool and the team and was someone many girls came to for advice or just to rant about their day. I'm hoping that in my senior year (next season) that the girls on the team will vote for me as one of our captains where I can continue to help and support our team.
I eat a balanced diet and make sure I stay hydrated. I create a schedule for myself that allows for free time, school work, swimming, and sleep. In the off season I still swim but also cross-train and run or sometimes bike. I stretch and do yoga before meets or after hard practices to make sure I don't hurt myself. I know my limits and although swimming seems to be the most important thing in my life, I make sure to properly balance my priorities so I don't overwhelm myself.
I volunteer on the modified swim team. I help demonstrate and give the younger swimmers advice. I love being apart of the entire swim program at my school and this allows me to make connections with girls before they join the varsity team.
Before COVID I also volunteered at a local day care. I volunteered in the baby room and had the opportunity to work with children ranging in age from only a few months old to a year and a half. I loved working with the young kids and see them grow.
