HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY to our newly crowned club president! To commemorate the lovely Rachel Martin‘s 21st birthday… we present to you all… her swimmer of the week spotlight!

Hometown: Pacific Palisades, CA
Class year: 2019

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? I would take some family and friends with me on a trip to New Zealand and then donate some, invest some, etc.
Favorite Dartmouth memory (thus far): Over the summer I lived in an apartment with my best friend and we had a few dinner parties which were super fun and felt very grown-up.
Favorite Club Swim memory: Freshman year we did Lou’s challenge but I had something early in the morning so I slept for a few hours and met everyone around 4am. Everyone was delirious and having a great time. It was fun to throw food around and get Kimmy mad at us! 😀
Goal for this coming year: I want to come to at least 3 practices a week (hopefully more, but academics tend to get in the way) and to get to know everyone even better!
