How I am involved in service in my community and why these efforts are important to me:

For the past three years I have been a junior counselor for Scottsdale Park in Chicago. I chose to volunteer at Scottsdale Park, because this is where I attended as a child.
My work hours are from 9:30 to 4:30 Monday thru Friday in summer.
I love being involved with the kids. We do play camp in the morning then in the afternoon after the small children go home, I stay and do day camp for the older children.
This is a great opportunity for me working with kids because I would like to be a pediatric nurse. I also love helping the senior citizens in my neighborhood. In the summer I go and help my surrounding neighbors in cutting their grass and in the winter I help shovel their drive ways, this gives me a sense of satisfaction.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. One example of how I have demonstrated leadership in both areas:

One time when I was playing on my club team which I play as a forward .Our goalie was injured, My coach asked if anyone would want to volunteer and play goalie, I decided to step up when no-one wanted to play goalie. I volunteered to play a position that I never played in the past. I had enough confidence in my ability in which I did pretty well, it made me feel good helping the team out.

My elderly neighbor last summer went in his garage to get something out and tripped and fell over the clutter in his garage. And hurt his leg. I decided to get my next door neighbor and with him clean out his whole garage. He was so grateful that's all he would talk about every time we would see him.

How I pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete:

I make sure I eat a good diet and definitely drink plenty of liquids. I know myself if I dont eat well before I play soccer or any sport my performance is poor. My energy level is very low. I was always told that water is very important even if you dont feel thirsty. It helps to hydrate your body and helps your body keep the right temp. I make sure I drink before, during and after I play a game.
