I have always loved swimming. I started with the Flying Fish in 2013. When I was 11 I began volunteer coaching, by age 13 I was doing it everyday. Coaching is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. I love teaching kids how to swim, and improve their skills. In the summer I also lifeguard at Fort Caroline. I am a student at Terry Parker where I am on the swim, soccer team, as well as the wrestling team's manager. I am new to wrestling and I have come to enjoy watching the matches. I am in the Schools IB program. I enjoy helping out in my community, and school. My hobbies include drawing and reading. I love going for rides on my scooter. My little brother is on the swim team as well and we both enjoy the same sports where it is a real joy to teach him all that I can.
