Senior Victor Heskia swimming at a meet at Huron. Heskia looks too clear his mind when he swims.

Senior Victor Heskia runs, swims, golfs, and likes everything from fashion, to cars, and planes. You have never met the busiest man in the world until you met Victor Heskia.

“I run, swim, golf and I’m a senior,” Heskia said.  “I also like fashion, cars, and planes.”

His role model is his dad. Heskia’s dad got him interested in cars and planes. They both have similar goals, so whenever he wants to try something new, his dad is right by his side.

 “I’m open to anything,” Heskia said.  “I like being a leader, helping and collaborating with others.”

Leadership plays a big role in Heskia’s life, due to him being the oldest of five siblings. Using leadership in his day-to-day life helps him set boundaries and rules so him and his siblings can achieve something greater.

 “My greatest achievement is probably my IA [Internal Assessment],” Heskia said.  “It’s a 2200-word essay I wrote.”

For Heskia, moving from around the world has faced challenges like making new friends.  He has learned to become open and more empathetic.

 “One thing I have learned from my greatest failure is that anything is possible,” Heskia said.  “You have to make it interesting and look forward to doing it even if it’s not.”

 His favorite thing about swimming is his teammates. They have fun and even bond outside of the pool.

  “I started swimming my Junior Year,” Heskia said. “I joined swimming to challenge myself, and a lot of my friends suggested I join.”

Heskia gives vital information about swimming.

 “First you need to know it’s not easy,” Heskia said.  “You can start at your own level, you don’t need to keep up with everyone, as long as you try your hardest you will make it.”

This year was Heskia’s breakthrough moment when he started working on his forearm.  That’s when he realized he was going somewhere.

“I would love to continue swimming after High School,”Heskia said.
