How have you gotten better at Arizona?: After completing my freshman year here at Arizona, not only have I gotten to be a better swimmer, I have become a better person. Now when I practice it is not just for myself but also for all my teammates who are counting on me work as hard as I can day in and day out. I have learned how to make personal sacrifices for the good of the team, not just for myself and I've realized when you are practicing for your teammates it makes it all the more bearable.

Favorite Book: Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, The Robe, and Wuthering Heights

Favorite Movie: Breakfast at Tiffany's

Favorite Quote: "Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt" -William Shakespeare

Favorite Sports Star: Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs

Philosophy on Life: Live in the present moment.

What makes the Arizona swim/dive experience so special?: The fact that no matter where you look or where you go, you will not find a better staff of coaches to train under or a better group of people to train with. That is what makes Arizona so special.
