I feel passionate about swimming. I wanted a sense of community and somewhere to belong, sports helped give me that. I started working hard and truly pursuing swimming about a year ago or last high school season. Since then it’s really helped me grow as an individual and an athlete. A senior named Alexa Sullivan inspires. She’s an amazing swimmer and she’s really helped me out a lot through the year whether that be rides to practice or just some encouragement at meets. When I’m not feeling great I turn to my team and they help give me the motivation to continue. Having that strong of a support system really helps. They usually give me a pep talk and so do my coaches which really help my drive to swim.
