I was born in January of 1997 to my parents Victoria and Scott Bader. Growing up in Saint Louis, I was raised Catholic and attended Chaminade College Preparatory School for high school.
Between the ages of 5 and 18, I swam competitively and was the captain of my high school swim team. My event was the 500 freestyle, a grueling 20 lap event. I wasn't an Olympian, but I wasn't half bad either!
