Through athletics I have learned a lot about what it means to be a leader. As an “older girl” on both club gymnastics and diving teams with many younger team members, I am an example to them as to what is appropriate behavior as a competitive athlete. I try to be a good role model with regard to keeping a good attitude, hard work and focus. I know I have a responsibility to positively influence the impressionable minds of these younger kids. I do everything I can to help these younger kids to meet their full potential, through words of encouragement and by setting an example.
To me, a key quality in being a leader is earning respect. I treat my teammates with as much respect as I would like to receive, making all members feel equally important. This sets the example of having trust in one another, which can make or break a team or a leadership structure.
Off the field, I use my best judgment in guiding my younger brothers in the right direction. With busy, working parents, I am very involved in their lives and I’m often looked to when they need support and encouragement. For example, several weeks ago my brother Ben approached me after his first high school soccer practice, ready to quit. As a three-season varsity athlete I understand the challenge of implementing sports into your daily schedule and exerting the effort that needs to be put forth as a student-athlete. After talking with Ben for a while about how I personally handle it, his mindset became a lot more positive in knowing that it is possible to balance different aspects of your life. I also spoke to him about how regular physical exercise drastically improves the quality of your life.
There is no question that being a student-athlete comes with challenges. Often, I am faced with hour away club practices, which I attend after my high school practice, followed by many hours of homework and studying. These difficulties, however, can be handled in ways that maintain the perfect balance between work and sports and allow me to put forth my best effort in both areas of my life.
I value hard work immensely. Being a club team member year-round and three season varsity student-athlete, I strongly believe that healthy athletic performance and lethargy are antonymous. To stay driven, I always try my best to get enough sleep, form healthy habits in diet and behavior, and keep my stress level down by seeing my friends on weekends and being as productive as I can during the school week. Time management is an important aspect of any student-athlete's life, and procrastination is a detrimental habit that negatively impacts our performance in both school and athletics.
I believe that productivity and maintaining healthy habits are key to overcoming the challenges and stress of being a student-athlete.
I have been a community volunteer for the following organizations and events.
- Annual Hyannis Spirit Triathlon
- Relay For Life volunteer - two years in a row
- Save the SHS Pool Committee
- Captain Gerald DeConto Memorial Road Race volunteer - three years. in a row
- After Prom student volunteer
- Spanish tutor volunteer
- Freshman Orientation peer leader
- Step-Up Day peer leader
- STEM Orientation peer leader
In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering and giving back to my community in many ways. I particularly enjoy supporting worthwhile organizations while at the same time, encouraging physical fitness. I find sports and participating in athletic activities to be extremely important to bettering the life of adolescents. I also very much enjoy acting as a role model and encouraging academic success, so peer leadership and tutoring are also ways I volunteer.
