A huge part of swimming for me is I love it, and it is so much fun.
I am the luckiest girl in the world. I learned that if I just keep a positive mental attitude, that I can go out there and do whatever I hope I can do. It's all mental in getting out there, and having confidence in myself, and having strength and knowing I can do it.
Sometimes we complain, but there is something beautiful about waking up before everyone to get better at what we love.

I'm always so excited about what I do that I try to get everyone to feel that way.
I'm just an all-around happy girl who loves everything about her life.

Sometimes when my mom finds a fun article and really wants me to read it, I will. But I prefer to just kind of focus on what I want to do and not really what other people are saying, because I don't want that to affect me too much.
Hopefully I don't annoy people too much.
I don't think about the trials and the Olympics a lot. If I do, it's just going to stress me out and get me worried.
For right now, I still believe that college is what's going to make me the happiest girl.
I don't like watching myself on TV, I don't like reading about myself.
