    Swimming Built Courage

    When I joined my high school swim team, I was a real no-body. Coming into high school, I knew absolutely no one, and I was never a social type of person. After about a week, an announcement was made that said the Swim team was needing people. My teacher called me in and told...

    Swimming Keeps Me Alive

    I've been having trouble lately, not gonna lie.  This guy (the one mentioned in my username) was on track with me and I had to see him every single day of the week after school, and that broke my heart every day because I'll never have him. ANYWAYS, now that track season is over...

    Once a competitor....

    always a competitor. I started in grade 6 in Portage-la-Prairie. I've competed in AFCent (Allied Forces Central Europe). Once my times were good and in one if the middle three lanes I had a bad habit of being the last on the blocks and looking left and right, putting a small...

    why I swim competitively?

    This is an interesting story to say the least. Many people know that I have 2 sisters, but not a lot of people know that I had a brother as well at one time. Henry is the twin of my 12 year old sister and he drowned in a pool of a friends of my parents when he was 4. Us...
