Thank you: I would like to thank every single coach that has ever spent the time to help me progress in my love of sports, especially those who enjoyed swimming and pushed me in the pool. It is because of you that I was able to achieve many goals, especially to receive a scholarship to swim in college. I would like to thank my sister for putting up with 10 years of swim alongside me. Finally, I would like to thank my parents for spending countless hours and traveling thousands of miles around the state to support my love of swimming.
