I began diving quite a bit older than most divers, at the age of 13, and I have improved to the same level of divers my age in a shorter period of time. I am a highly motivated diver and am the kind of person that will face any challenges that are thrown my way both in the pool and at school. Despite having to manage numerous injuries, I have pushed through very time and maintained my motivations. I have held many leadership positions in the past and believe this has enabled me to gain a strength in being a leader to others. I will do anything I possibly can to maximize my outcomes and will take any positive opportunity that is handed to me. I believe I am built for diving and my love and passion for the sport is indescribable.

I believe competing in college will allow me to broaden my competition experience as I will be able to compete against a wide variety of different people. I will be able to improve much more in my diving if I train in the US, as I cannot get this kind of training opportunity here in Australia.

I wish to study Sport Psychology whilst training for my diving. Training wise, my goal is to improve to a very high standard and hopefully make it to my highest possible achievement.

I wish to become an Olympic springboard diver, where I am able to inspire many younger athletes training towards the same kind of goals. I wish to prove that you do not need to start diving at such a young age, as I began diving at the age of 13 and have improved dramatically since then. I also want to become a Sports Psychologist, where I can guide and assist other aspiring athletes. I also wish to build my confidence and learn to believe in myself much more as I believe this is a major necessity to achieve my goals.
