Leadership is important to have because it shows that you have confidence enough to be an example for people and take control. It also shows that people trust you enough and believe you are capable. I show leadership on the field because I try to be a good example to the rest of my team mates and the underclassmen. I also challenge myself as much as I can and hope that others follow in my footsteps. For example, one time in the weight room, I decided to make one of the exercises harder for me. We were doing a circuit work out, so every time we switched exercises, a new person would come across what I had done differently to the exercise. This caused them to want to do it as well. Although I don't always tell others what to do, I put it in front of them to bait them into doing it. I show leadership off the field because I always take the initiative to plan team activities. I like to make sure everything is planned out and everyone can go.
I support and pursue "healthy athletic performance" by eating healthy food and relying on my training and body to perform. I think it's wrong to take performance enhancing drugs because you are just lying to yourself. Plus, it is super bad for your body, which is what you shouldn't be working for. Hard work, eating clean, and determination are the most important aspects of the healthy athletic performance life.
I have always enjoyed making people smile because I help them in any way possible. It started when I was in elementary school and our class went to an old folks home. We sang them Christmas carols and they lit up. Since then, I've been volunteering and taking part in CSF, which is a club at Foothill that has you do a volunteer job each semester. Although it is only biannual, I still have a lot of fun doing it.
