My passion is swimming.
Growing up, I always liked the water and when my mom signed me up for the swim team I knew what I would always end up doing for my free time. Now, every chance I get, I learn and practice as much as possible so that I can become the best swim team member on my swim team. When I'm swimming, it feels like I have all the time in the world to think about life and myself. I don't know what other sport I would choose if I didn't have swimming.
Attending the Nike Swim Camp will help me exceed in swimming, and I will have a chance to meet other people from other swim teams. The main reason I actually want to attend the Nike Swim Camp is to show that everyone has the ability to succeed.
"Juan has been swimming on city swim teams since he was eight years old. Up until this year, when the commute to practices became unreasonably long, he was swimming on three different teams.
Juan is searching for opportunities that will help him distinguish himself from his peers. His current high school doesn't have a swim team and because of distance, he can no longer participate on the city teams he swam for in the past. Given his passion for swimming personally and the way that he gives back to his community by volunteering as a swim instructor, the Nike Swim Camp will benefit both Juan and his community."
