Turner started swimming when he was seven years old. He stated that although his parents encouraged him to try several sports, swimming was the one he felt most passionate about. He spent most of his childhood years perfecting his skills and it paid off.  

”Swimming has been a large part of my life. This sport has allowed me to travel and meet other young swimmers that have similar diversified backgrounds, nationalities, and stories like myself in facing some obstacles to be seen in this sport. I’ve had a great mentor in former University of California national champion swimmer Reece Whitley, who educated me a lot about what this sport can offer, and that the only main obstacle is yourself. Never give up and remember that you belong on deck. So, I’m excited to see what the future holds for me in this sport. I know it will take hard work, focus, and dedication along this journey, much like my education and all of my other life endeavors," Turner stated.
