Samantha Stein - GPA 3.9

In third grade, I experienced my first love. I never experienced love like this before. I played many other sports, but no sport made me so happy and giddy as diving did. It was like love at first jump. My parents, who had absolutely no clue what my new passion entailed, supported my love in diving. Yet just like every relationship, diving and I had our ups and downs. However, we were able to overcome our problems, and, everyday, I fall in love with the sport over and over again.
