Lauren Hew has represented the Cayman Islands at international meets since she was 14 years old. Through two Commonwealth Games and five World Championships (three long-course), she’s gotten used to being one of the few members of her team, accustomed to what it takes to blend into the larger groups on deck or during warmups.
