Sarah Rodriguez

Synchro

NAME: SARAH RODRIGUEZ 
HOMETOWN: SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS
BIRTHPLACE: SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

Sarah Rodriguez is originally from Texas. She moved to California three years ago to pursue her dream of becoming an Olympic synchronized swimmer, a part of the team that competes for the USA in 2016.  Sarah enjoys dancing whenever she gets the chance, and catching up on world news is a favorite activity of mine.  She has wanted to go to medical school since she was about nine years old, and within the last few years she has taken a serious liking to writing and acting.
