Humans of FHC: Anna Schwartz


“Freshman year, I played soccer. Sophomore year, I did crew. Junior year, I did track, and this year I’m playing water polo. I think it’s important to be dedicated to a sport and put a lot of time into it. I played soccer for eight years, but I decided to spend high school having more new experiences and trying new things. I’ve always enjoyed all athletics and working out, and I’ve been able to meet so many people and have so many different cool experiences with it. So, I’m really happy that I’ve decided to do that. I know a lot of people like to focus on one sport, but I knew I was never going to play a sport collegiately or anything, so I just wanted to have fun. I think that you should try to put in the time and effort when you are committed to [one] sport, but if you do just want to try different things, I think it’s okay. Always push yourself to try new things, because it’s not always comfortable to try a new sport, especially this year as a senior. I think it has really pushed me to try new things, push myself athletically, talk to new people that maybe I don’t know, and push myself out of my comfort zone.”
