Meet Kristina '20

Kristina dives directly into challenges. As a member of the Stonybrook Swim and Dive teams and the year-round competitive Phoenix Aquatics Club team, this Junior Olympic swimmer earned the moniker “the diver girl” for her willingness to try all sorts of combination plunges into the pool. She has mastered many, including a double flip, through the sheer determination that led her to spend months training to improve her time in the 50-meter freestyle.

Kristina is also determined to help others. A stellar volunteer, Kristina is part of the Outreach Club at AHA, where she is a member of the Robotics Club and the choir. She regularly participates in pageants that focus on academics, character, and community service. She has received the Points of Light Award, the Boys & Girls Club Service Award, and the Girl Power Award for her many selfless acts. Kristina won the Eckerd College Scholarship for her academic achievements, and earned national and state titles through America’s National Teenager Scholarship Organization. This exemplary volunteer teaches children to swim, and works with a summer camp for homeless youths. She also served as a “buddy” for a child with disabilities, participated in Relay for Life, conducted a drive to assist veterans, and helped collect and deliver donations for hospitalized children. Kristina is a certified lifeguard and is trained in CPR. She is a varsity cheerleader for Saint Joseph Regional High School, and enjoys gymnastics and yoga. She is a self-taught ukulele, guitar, and piano player.
