How long have you been diving?

“This is my first year diving.”

How have you been able to pick up diving so quickly?

“I have been really into trampoline flips and tricks, so I was able to use my background in trampoline flips [to] help me with diving.”

What is your favorite trick to do and how has it helped you in diving?

“My favorite trick on the trampoline would have to be a double backflip. The double backflip helps me with my awareness because the awareness with flipping is the same in diving.”

Who has been the biggest inspiration in your diving career?

“My biggest inspiration would have to be senior Ryan Talbot. I like to watch him do his dives, and I try to do the same ones; I just look up to him.”  

What is your personal goal for this season? 

“My personal goals are to get my two and a half dives down before the end of the season. I would also like to fix up my form. I think practicing hard and putting the time and effort in it takes to fix these things will be key to achieving them.”
