Why Arizona?: The coaching staff is one of the most respected in this sport. That's the reason why I am here and I can just work hard in order to make my team better. I also know that this is the best place for me to be and I can say that this is the opportunity for me to grow as a human being and many swimmers in the world don't get that chance.

Philosophy on life: I am trying to do everything in that way so I can justify my actions in front of the face of God.
