Interview

What makes you different?

Everybody is unique in their own way and so am I. Failure doesn’t scare me, I think, in fact , that it is part of the process that gets you to success. I’m exceptionally organized and I know how to manage my time. I am the most cheerful, self-motivated and fast learning person I know. I communicate well with people, always giving 101% of my potential and truly enjoy pushing myself.

College Goals

My college goals are to bring out the best of me, work really hard for the team, graduate with honors and meet new people.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I genuinely think that I am ready to commit 100% to the team and improve myself as an athlete, as a student and as a person.

Swimming and life Goals?

I am aiming to the World Championships for my swimming goals and what every athlete dreams about- the Olympic Games. In life, I really want to make my parents proud, have a good career and loving family of my own
