When Jessica was 10, her dad encouraged her to pick up swimming, and although she was reluctant at first, she tried it and grew to enjoy it more and more with each training. She hadn’t considered other sports at ASH until her friends signed up for track and she decided to as well. With a dedication to her training, Jessica realized she could “do anything and that I could improve my own health and endurance”. She loves the support she gets from her family and ASH athletics community when competing and this makes up an important part of Jessica’s #ASHexperience.
