During one of my first swim meets, I saw the older kids cheering me on and thought, 'I met these people 30 minutes ago, and they're cheering for me like they've known me for years!'

My favorite HW memory so far happened during one of my first swim meets with the middle school team. The older kids from the varsity team came down to watch us swim. I was swimming my first event of the day, and on every turn, I saw all the older kids bending down and cheering me on, urging me to go faster. I thought, 'I met these people 30 minutes ago, and they're cheering for me like they've known me for years!' It was an amazing feeling, to have the older kids treat me like family even though we barely knew each other. From that moment, I could tell that I was going to meet so many wonderful people at HW.
