Humans of SD – Sofia Apolinario


What has your experience in aquatic sports been like?

“I started playing water polo my freshman year. I learned about the the sport and I fell in love with it. Making new friends, learning to work with others, and enjoying the game made me come back each year. I also joined the swim team after polo season and discovered that I like the competition aspect of the sport. It always pushes me to be better than the day before, and to never give up no matter how tired I am even though it is a mentally and physically challenging sport. After all my water sport experiences I got a job as a lifeguard during the summer season at Raging Waters and gained more knowledge like CPR and work experience. Looking at these past 3 years I’m glad I joined SDHS Aquatics.”
