What are some recent successes you’ve had so far this season?

Who inspires you in your swimming career?

What are your plans for the future?

“In the upcoming years, I plan on continuing to better my swimming and I hope to keep building connections with all the girls on the team.”

What is your favorite memory you have from swimming for FHC?

“I remember the moment I heard the announcer at the Spartan Relay meet saying the team scores at the end of the meet. When he announced FHC as first place, I remember how excited everyone was. It was one of the first times we actually felt like a team.”

What is the best part about being on the swim team?

“It is hard to choose just one piece, but if I had to pick, it would probably be the team in general. All of the girls are so nice and funny and I’m really enjoying getting to know them better.”
