When did you start swimming?

I could swim alone at the ripe young age of two years old, but I started swimming competitively at 5 years old.

Why did you stay with the sport?

Because my sister started doing it after I did so since there were two Wilber girls swimming, my family stuck with it. I had a lot of support from my parents and so I continued it and then it eventually just became a thing. Also, I like to get wet.

How has it affected your life?

It has become an integral part of my life and I want to continue it. It is so important to me that I got a little fish tattoo because fish swim and so do I. Sorry mom and dad.

Where are you going to college?

Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.

What are you going to be studying in college?

Environmental studies/education.

Why do you want to study this?

I want to save the world.

What are your feelings about going to college?

Je suis hella excited.

Tell me about your cat?

Stuart is a 15 pound, ten year old, short-haired grey male. He has a tumor on the side of his head so he needs extra loving. One time he $h!t on my bed before school but I forgave him because I can’t be mad at an animal with cancer.

Are you going to miss Stuart when you go to college?

Yes, and he is going to become depressed. Whenever I come home he runs to me and his stomach jiggles, ugh, so cute. I found housing next year for animal lovers where you can bring your pets so maybe he’ll come with me, but that might make me a social outcast.

Where do you think you’re going to be in 10 years?

Hopefully living in Alaska, being a park ranger.

What’s your favorite movie?

The Harry Potter series, god damn love that series. I’m still upset I never got my letter to Hogwarts.
