Describe yourself :

I'm adventurous and very ambitious especially when it comes to my swimming, also I'm a determined person when it comes to completing my swimming goals. I'm pretty shy at first but when I loosen up I become crazy and one of my first priorities is to make my friends laugh or smile. Lastly I'm a very straight forward person.

 

What side or character of yours that would most likely surprise others?

That I'm only 13.

 

What age did you start swimming? What brought you to the sport of swimming?

I started competitively swimming when I was 4. I had mild asthma and my parents used swimming as a form of medication I suppose, but only to find out I was destine to be a competition swimmer.

 

During your early years of swimming, have you ever thought that you will reach where you are now today as a swimmer? Why?

Yes, because ever since I was a young child I had high goals for my swimming and I've always achieved them.

 

What do you think are the factors that make you a successful swimmer?

Fortunately I'm an naturally athletic person and have always been very tall for my age and also I have been blessed throughout my career with the most supportive and loving parents and the best and the most long suffering bunch of coaches that a swimmer could ever ask for.

 

What is your most memorable experience as a swimmer?

Having qualified for the 2016 SEA age group games in Thailand having only been back training for 3 months.

 

Apart from being a Summer Olympian, what is (are) your other goal(s) as a swimmer?

Having already qualified to represent the Philippines in the 2016 SEA age group games in Thailand my next goal is to win gold at the SEA age group games and after that to represent the Philippines in the 2018 Youth Olympics games in Argentina.

 

Was there ever a time that you thought of quitting swimming? Why?

I stopped swimming for the whole year of 2015, by that time I had already been swimming for roughly 8 years and just got tired of it and needed to take a break.

 

Who do you look up to as a swimmer? Why?

No one.

 

Any specific routines before and during the meet or before a swim? What are these?

I always wear my old red swimming coat, right now it's 7 years old.

 

Please share some words of wisdom for swimmers who wish to be like you.
