I am honored and proud to announce my verbal commitment to Northwestern University. First of all, I would like to thank all the people who have supported me throughout the recruiting process and my whole swimming career - my family, coaches and friends. Secondly, I would like to express my gratitude to the incredible people from a world-class institution such as Northwestern who gave me a chance to live the dream of being able to train and compete at the highest level while getting the best possible education. NU′s swimming program, led by phenomenal coaching staff, is surely moving in the right direction and I will do my best to help this team flourish even more. No words can explain how excited I am to see what the future brings. Go ′Cats!
