What is your most memorable swimming/diving moment? Why?
Being able to go to North Coast Sections as a Senior because I qualified by less than a point.

Describe yourself as an athlete and as a student. 
I believe I am diligent in both academics and athletics. I try to focus on myself in being a better person than I was yesterday.

What piece of coaching and/or personal advice has stuck with you over the years? 
In 6th grade my diving coach gave me a key chain that said “Greatness isn’t how many times you compete a great dive, but how many times it goes wrong and you get back on the board.”

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
I hope to be working for doctors without borders or red cross as a doctor in another country.
