How does Denton differ from your hometown?

Denton is unique in its own way it has a mix of interesting places and things to do. It also has a variety of food places to choose from and the people are really nice and friendly. I have lived in both the city in London and on the coast in France. They are both different and have their own qualities.


Who or what got you into the sport?

My parents got me into swimming with my two other siblings. They just wanted us to learn to swim as a life skill and use the most of our potential that will help us in our careers and life ahead.


Favorite event to compete:

My favorite events are 100 and 200 breaststroke


Event you hope to never compete:

Distance free and backstroke


What are you looking forward to most about the upcoming season?



This season I look forward to the training trip and competing with the team especially at conference. My goal for this season is to obtain an A cut time for NCAAs.


What is your favorite sport to watch during the Olympics?  

I loved watching swimming finals and other sports such as athletics, beach volleyball, gymnastics and rowing.

Who is your team family?

My family is called Delta Fish. I am with Basia, Natalia and Ceci we also have quite a few internationals within our team family.

Do you have a hidden (or not so hidden) talent?

I like taking photos of places I go and visit.
