What is your most memorable swimming/diving moment? Why?
My most memorable swimming moment was my junior year when I found out I had made state for the first time. I was in target with my high school relay team and we uploaded the state call-up list on one of our phones. When we saw my name we all started screaming and jumping up and down! I love my teammates so much.

Describe yourself as an athlete and as a student.
I am an athlete who likes to make progress. I'll keep pushing myself until I achieve whatever goal I have set for myself. As a student, I give my best effort and try to get everything done as soon as possible!

What piece of coaching and/or personal advice has stuck with you over the years?
Be tough and get it done! Persistance and determination are omnipotent.
