Describe yourself :

I am very goal-oriented and diligent.

 

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

I also have a fun side.

 

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

I started at age 5. There was a swimming pool and club a few blocks from our house so I decided it would be the most convenient sport for me to join in.

 

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

In my early years of swimming, Iíve hoped to go far but I never knew for certain where my swimming would take me.

 

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

I think itís because I know what my goals are and I am persistent in trying to attain them.

 

What is your most memorable experience as a swimmer?

Swimming in the finals against Sun Yang in the 400 freestyle during the Asian Swimming Championships in Dubai.

 

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

To win medals for the country in the SEA Games and Asian Games.

 

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

Just like a lot of other swimmers, Iíve thought about quitting swimming whenever I encounter problems I thought was too difficult to bear. But, I always remember quitting is not the solution.

 

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

Of course, my sister and Ryan Arabejo. Theyíve set an example and paved the way for younger swimmers like me. I also am a big fan of Miguel Molina whether in and out of the pool.

 

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

No specific routines, just do what I believe is needed for me to be prepared and ready for the race.

 

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

I would advise them to set goals and to consistently work to attain those goals by showing up every day at practice and also by thinking of ways to better themselves as an athlete.
