#TEAMHERO athletes encompass everything it means to be a true HERO: they are athletes on the field, scholars in the classroom, and volunteers in the community.
We sat down with our newest #TEAMHERO athlete, Dani Miller at our most recent photoshoot and got to know her a little bit better. She is one little studette at only eight years old!! And don't let her shyness fool you; she is one smart cookie! Keep an eye out for this speedy girl at swim meets near you! Keep on scrolling to learn more about her. As always, don't forget to give her a shout out on our Facebook page!
