Q: How often do you practice?

A: Three or four days a week at 1 hour and 15 minutes at a time. I could do it five cause I love it so much.

Q: How many years have you swam?

A: Three summers. This is my first year-round season

Q: Why do you swim?

A: I like being in the water and I really like sports. Since my sisters swim I don’t want to sit out and watch. I’d rather get in the water and do it.
