I volunteer often in my community. My volunteer activities include Food Bank of Delaware, local churches missions, and serving as a camp counselor during the summer months.
I have demonstrated leadership skills in school, in my community, and while serving as a camp counselor in the summer. An example of this would be when I organized service initiatives for my football team. These initiatives included assisting the elderly in getting food and clothing, community recycle events, and managing camp activities for boys from low income communities. My role in these initiatives were to make connections with the organizer, assemble volunteers from the team, sending out reminders, giving instructions on what was expected from the team, ensuring that everyone arrived on time and ready to work.
As a student athlete, I am very conscious about what I eat and it affects my body. I ensure that my diet is balanced and contains the necessary essentials for maximum performance and for ultimate health. This was a lesson learn for me as I matured as an athlete and realized that a proper diet can protect me from injury. An example of this would be ensuring that I drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, eating enough protein for muscle growth and to repair, and eating enough carbs for energy.
