energetic, reliable, sincere, family-oriented, fun-loving

Tell us about your best memory of your athletic career:

My greatest swimming memory was the FINA Swimming World Cup in Berlin in 2019. I got to meet and race against my idol Katinka Hosszu. It was a wonderful opportunity to race against Olympic champions and it inspired me to take my swimming to the next level.


In the short term I really want to swim in the US as part of a college team and take my swimming to the next level. Long term I would like to swim in the Olympics and the ISL!

Anything else we should know?

I love racing and I really enjoy being part of a team. My favorite galas have always been the team galas where I got to race as part of a relay. My current swim coach is my dad and he has encouraged me to pursue this opportunity to grow as a swimmer and a person!
