Athletes advice for others who want to play this sport: "If someone is looking to join swimming I would tell them to give it a shot. It is a great sport to get involved in because of the people you meet and the life skills it teaches you."
How the athlete trains: "I train for swimming year-round. It may look like a lot of swimming back and forth, and at times it is, but ultimately it is hard work. Although it is very time-consuming, it is very rewarding at the same time."
Athlete’s plan after high school: After high school I plan to continue my academic and swimming career at The University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and study architecture.
