I became involved in synchronized swimming from one of my friends who invited me to give it a try! I was 11 when I started and have been in club for three seasons. I do what I do because I love it! I have so many wonderful teammates that have become like sisters to me. I have an amazing coach who always pushes me to the max. As an athlete my self-drive and a competitive spirit have grown that I now take the same passion for my sport and apply it to other aspects of my life, like school.



My favorite product is definitely Foggies! When swimming my synchro routine in 13 feet deep water having fogged up goggles makes it hard to see choreographed patterns and know where I am in the pool, but with Foggies I can see crystal clear throughout my practice!

How many pets do you have?

How many goggles do you own?

What temp is your favorite?

How many years have you been competing?

Greatest Inspiration:
My greatest inspiration would be my coach. She has taught me to work as hard as I can and push myself to my full potential and capabilities. She explains things in ways I can understand by using real life situations. I’ve learned to be strong, graceful, and to be a leader like the women who came before me. They’ve competed at Local meets, Nationals, the Olympics, and entertained us in film and water shows (La Rêve and O by Cirque du Soilel). 

Do you prefer shoes or flip flops:  
I definitely would prefer Flip Flops over shoes! I wear flip flops so much! I even wear them in winter! They are so easy and comfortable and so easy to pack, out on, it keep in your car for on the go!


 Proudest Moment:
My proudest moment would be when at the California State Games LA Synchro took 1st place! My Club won the title of 2017 Synchronized Swimming Team Champions with all our choreographed routines in teams, trios, duets and my solo performance.
