On the field, I served as Captain of the 2012 Field Hockey Team. This involved leading female athletes spanning grades 9-12. Off the field, I lead the news editing team for the school newspaper, and I am also a Trained Student Leader/peer counselor. Through these efforts, I am guiding a team of my peers and younger students to accomplish activities and deliver strong results.
I am very busy with academics, sports, and music, so I don't have a lot of down-time. I have learned to manage my time well, and take care of my health as best I can. I eat healthy, nutritious foods, get a sports massage every now and then, spend time with friends and family, and enjoy life! It's possible to do it all, but sometimes I have to prioritize one over the other. Academics and school work must come first, and with that in mind, I have been able to manage it all so far!
I have been involved in a number of service activities through school, church, and community. I led a fundraising effort to support Invisible Children, which raised over $1000 in support of the organization's efforts. I was a part of the Cincinnati's Zoo's VolunTeen Program last summer, working over 140 hours in various positions to support the Zoo's educational and community efforts. I also give back to others through my music. I have played violin for retirement centers, church programs, and charity/fundraising events. I enjoy sharing my talent/passion for music with others. I also tutor middle school students after school.
I plan to do volunteer work this summer in my field of interest (biology) at the Cincinnati Nature Center.
