Interview

Give us 5 words that best describe you as an athlete:

committed, appreciative, disciplined, friendly, honest

Tell us about your best memory of your athletic career:

I only started to win medals in swimming competitions at age 14. This is considered quite late in Singapore, especially for girls. And soon after I got my first medals, I cut my finger during a school charity project, requiring 14 stitches and putting me out of practice for a few months. Then I had an eczema outbreak caused by chlorine. I consulted doctors to keep my condition in check, watched my food intake and did land exercises on days chlorine was added to the pool. I never thought about giving up despite the obstacles. Now at 17, I am clocking faster times and believe this is only the beginning!

Goals:

I want to be a successful student-athlete by trusting in the process and being the best that I can be. In so doing, I believe I can achieve my goals – graduate in the top 10% of my college and medal in the Olympics!

Anything else we should know?

I believe success begets success and this is why I aim to enter a college with the right environment to allow me to perform my best academically and athletically.
