“Though my swimming has always been very important to me, my academics have always been my top priority, given that I am wanting to go into Civil Engineering. USC is one of the few schools that can offer an amazing education along with the opportunity to be able to train and compete for a top 5 athletic program. I highly respect Coach Salo’s training philosophy and I truly felt at home when I was with the team on my official visit. I can not wait to see what is in store for me in these next four years and am beyond blessed to have this amazing oppurtunity to be a part of the Trojan family.”
