SENIOR Aaron Sequeria committed to swim for Stanford University's class of 2024. He plans to swim for all of his college years and even continue farther. “I hope to get as far as I can, maybe even stand on the Olympic podium someday,” Sequeria said.

SENIOR Aaron Sequeria is a member of the WHHS Varsity Swim Team and has been swimming competitively since he was five. Sequeria became inspired to swim since he grew up watching his sister’s swim meets. He’s in the water anywhere from six to eight times a week and this time has paid off. 

Sequeria has broken every single pool record and every school record, except for the hundred breaststroke, and finaled at Junior Nationals. He has also qualified for two Olympic Trial cuts, so he will be swimming in the 2020 Olympic Trials. 

Sequeria committed to Stanford University’s class of 2024 and plans to swim throughout those years. While at Stanford, Sequeria plans to major in aeronautics and astronautics. He plans to keep swimming throughout all of his college years and even continue farther. 

“I hope to get as far as I can, maybe even stand on the Olympic podium someday,” Sequeria said. 

Because of his success, Sequeria serves as an important role model to younger swimmers in the WHHS swimming program, making him feel an overwhelming responsibility. “ I think of how I act and whether what I say or do could affect anyone negatively” Sequeria said.
