How did you start swimming?

It’s keeping me in shape, which is good, but I hope to get fast enough to be on a good college water polo team.

Architecture. My plan was to be a firefighter during my off time.

How do you enjoy your free time from school and swimming?

Going to the beach and hanging with friends.

An architect who designs high-end houses.

If you could fluently speak another language, which would it be?

Croatian because I’ve always liked the language and I’m 25 percent Croatian.

Right now I like history, but I’ve always seemed to like math because it’s straight to the point.

What’s your favorite genre of movies?
