How long have you been competing in this sport?
Samaya Reddy: I’ve been swimming since I was 4 years old
Julia: I have been swimming competitively for six years now.
Marek: I’ve been swimming for 6 years
Why do you swim?
Samaya: I like swim because I’ve always loved the pool and being in the water, so it’s kind of calming and exciting for me to swim on a team and be with my friends!
Julia: I love swimming because it challenges me mentally and physically. It is such a good feeling to set hard goals, work for them and reach them. Swimming is a great outlet to build community and to create many character traits such as determination, grit, and resilience.
Marek: I swim because of the friends I have at swim and I enjoy competing.
