Determination

What do you appreciate most about your friends?
They are always there with a glass of wine when you need them.

On a personal note, my father, because he is a remarkable man whom I admire and respect deeply and credit for helping make me who I am. On a not-so-personal note, Ronald Reagan.

All-American status in college for swimming
