Romea was born and raised in Queens, where she took her first swim lessons as an infant and went on to join the Nu-Finmen swim team at the age of twelve. Her favorite events were the 800-meter freestyle, 100-meter butterfly, and the 100-meter breaststroke, with backstroke being decidedly her least favorite stroke to swim - but perhaps the stroke she's most confident teaching. Romea began teaching her younger teammates on the Nu-Finmen team as a teenager and continued to teach lessons at her local YMCA. Romea swam in high school for St. John's Prep and was the captain of the swim team at York College in 2016.
