I began swimming in the annual Greenwich-Stamford Swim Across America race in 2015. For the past 9 years, I have swam both in school and on an outside of school team. I’ve always been passionate about science and as I’ve grown older, I began to really be interested in cancer research. When I heard of the Swim Across America race, I immediately loved the idea of swimming in order to raise money for cancer research. Additionally, I am very active in raising money for cancer research because my mom is a breast cancer survivor and my grandmother is a lung cancer survivor. I am truly honored to be a part of such a wonderful event and am looking forward to this year’s success!
