On the field in swim and waterpolo as one of the veteran athletes I am often called upon to lead. Whether it is rallying the team before a waterpolo game, pulling together for fourth quarter comeback, celebrating a victory or reflecting on a loss I have become accustomed to and comfortable with taking the reigns in leadership positions, whether or not I am called to do so during good times. Off the field I am a leader in many ways. As mentioned above I am an eagle scout, and therefore assume a daily leadership role and take an oath to be a leader in my daily life. In scouts I have held countless leadership positions, instructing my fellow scouts both in meetings and on 100 mile treks. I am also a leader in classroom discussions, especially in history and language arts, and use my knowledge and leadership experience to help further other students understanding of the text and historical events.
To pursue healthy and optimal performance athletically I do all I can in my busy life to regiment myself. One of the large portions of my pursuit for athletic well-being is adequate hydration, a bit of knowledge I picked up while backpacking. I regularly drink up to one gallon of water a day. I balance my training throughout the year with aquatic training and land based calisthenic training to promote strength and flexibility. I keep a regular regiment of pushups, situps, pull ups, planks, etc. I maintain a healthy diet low in excess sugar, high in protein, carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fats, and try to avoid the sorts of overprocessed, nutrition free snack foods that are in no way, shape or form beneficial for athletes.
I have, since the end of my fifth grade year in schooling, been an active and contributing volunteer in my community. I began volunteering when I joined the Boy Scouts Of America, an organization I have continued with to this day, earning the prestigious Eagle Scout Award in 2013. From 2012-2013 I was the vice president of M.U.S.I.C Club, a service club that played familiar music for elderly citizens living in retirement/convalescent homes. In that experience i truly saw that often all that is needed to serve your community is a smile and a good amount of genuine friendliness and compassion towards others. From my freshman year to present I have been a member of the interact club, a community service club that branches off of the kiwanas club. I have regularly assisted with community events such as the children's Christmas event and the Little-League opening day ceremonies. In my high school career I have thus far amassed a total of 100 service hours.
