2013 section 6 third place 200 medley relay
My name is Sally Rozumalski, I attend Niagara Wheatfield High School. I am a hard working honor student interested in bio-medical studies. I have been swimming competitively since I was 6 years old. Currently, I swim for the Buffalo Area Aquatic Club formely STAR Swimming and for my High School. I'm a 2012 Niagara LSC finalist in the 200 free, 500 free,400 im, 100 back, and 1000. I am also a 2011 Section 6 finalist in the 200 free & 500. I also row for the West Side Rowing Club and was a state champion in the freshman 8 boat. I row both port and starboard and my goal for the end of next year is to be sub 7.20 in my 2,000 m and to be in both the top varsity 8 and 4 boats. My current 2,000m time is 7:26.
Well out of school I try to volunteer as much as I can. I help with soup kitchens, my mother's Irish group named LAOH, an activity called challenger baseball for those with special needs, and anywhere I can find. I believe this makes me a leader by showing people my age there is better, more important things you can do with your time. Things that will help someone else, and maybe they might try to change their ways. At school, I participate on 2 varsity sports , swimming and rowing. I try to be a mentor to the younger girls and set a good example for them. Also I try to be someone they can come and talk to about anything from racing to personal dilemmas.
As a student athlete I am aware it is important to be healthy and perform to the best of my ability. Being healthy consists of two things in my mind. First, eating right, staying hydrated and making sure to attend practice as much as possible. To ensure you compete to your maxim potential. Furthermore, there is a second component that is equally just as important. Being of sound mental stability. If you believe you can't do something then, you won't. In order to be the best you that you can be, you have to believe in yourself and your goals. You have to know that your training will give you the physical preparation, but it's up to you to put it into action.
I volunteer with my mother at a soup kitchen called The Hope center. It assists people in finding jobs and getting back on their feet. It also provides them warmth, shelter, and food for the time being. Helping people is of the utmost important to me, first off because it is a value my parents have always instilled in me. Putting others before yourself because someday that could be you, and you never know how much only helping for a few hours can impact someone's life. Furthermore , lending a hand to someone in need ensures them that someone is there for them. It gives them hope which is the whole idea.
