Corina is a smart girl that had a lot going for her in her younger years. Since she was little she was a champion swimmer and diver and excelled in school. Her family life was rather normal, her parents worked hard and she knew they didn’t always have a ton of money. She grew up knowing that if you work hard, you will get what you want out of life. A statement that she lived by. In high school, she had friends but spent most of her time swimming, diving and training. Her coaches told her she would be able to get a scholarship (something her parents were also hoping for). She made straight A’s and was scouted by many schools for their athletics programs. Because she spent so much time studying, training, or sleeping she was not the most social with anyone that didn’t swim.
Her senior year she accepted a scholarship to Cornell University to be on their swim and dive team and she quickly proved to be one of the best. She studied Environmental Studies with minors in business and biology. Corina believed in helping keep forests and plant life in an ever-growing industrial age. She continued to swim, and joined the ecology club at school. Things were going great until her senior year.
It was the qualifying meet for nationals and she was practically guaranteed a spot. It was her final year and she could taste the gold medal. Corina was never cocky and always kept herself realistic, knowing that nothing was EVER handed to you. She went to do her dive but as she climbed the ladder her hand slipped causing her to crash to the ground, dislocating and destroying her left shoulder and breaking a few fingers and giving her a concussion. Her dreams were dashed – everything she had been told she could achieve with hard work was gone.
Once she could no longer swim at the same level, with national and international dreams gone, she became a bit more bitter about life. Floating through her last semesters she graduated with honors but her general life view of had become more pessimistic than it had before. Once she graduated she got a job working for an environmental agency that often worked with the EPA. Her job was fine and she was often trapped indoors at a desk going over reports and paperwork and is often asked to go into the city for conferences and meetings. In her spare time she keeps active running, swimming (as much as she can without hurting her shoulder), yoga, pilates, and other strength and flexibility classes. She also coaches a local youth swim and dive team.Equipment:
(She will be in the city for a conference at the beginning so she’ll have things in a suitcase in her hotel room) What she actively carries with her in her hand bag: wallet, cell phone, lipbalm, protein bar, eye drops, lipstick, hair pins and ties, swiss army knife, water bottle, and sunglasses.
