Personal Highlights

I'm a girl who has a passion for diving. I started diving at the age of 9 at Sunny slope pool over the summers. I have gotten 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place ribbons. Although my 3rd year in the diving program, I had hit the board while preforming an inward dive. After being shot down for a redo, I left with bruises , scraps, and a participation ribbon. The next day I presumed with my goal of improving, but sadly I hit my arm in the same spot preforming the same dive. My sophomore year; I had started diving for Sunnyslope High School after 4 years of retirement. Since then I have improved tremendously. I was also awarded most improved diver, and was put on the Varsity team. I will be getting my diploma this year, 2013. I may not have a gymnastic background, but my passion for this sport is endless. Its gotten me from getting constant participation ribbons to 1st place ribbons, and I'm willing to work for this love.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Most of the time at my practices there will be little ones who have just started with diving, and while the coaches are coaching other kids. I will help give tips on different things i do to get ready for a dive or fix something they need help with. For instance, some of the kids have a hard time pointing their toes or keeping their arms by their sides. What I think of is as soon as I start to come out of a flip i think automatically to smack my legs, or to curl my toes. Even though curling your toes wont look pretty; At least they will kind of remind you to point your toes, and it seems to work for most. Just reminding them before they go on the board seems to aid them and it makes them happy when they get a great score.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

To maintain a healthy athletic performance I work out every day. While drinking tons of water and I've been eating a lot better. I make sure to stretch and practice little things at home.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.
