Diving has taught me a lot about life. My sport is all about perseverance and hard work. Sometimes you fail and sometimes you have to overcome obstacles and disappointments and you learn you have to stay calm. It seems like those are the same things you need in your daily life.

Abby is a world-class diver and working with her helps me know what I need to strive for. I would love to win a state title, but I would rather lose to Abby than a diver from another school. Abby has great talent.
