I believe I act like a leader on and off the pool deck. An example where I have demonstrated leadership off the deck is being employed since the summer of my freshman year. I first was employed at Burger King where I worked front counter and drive thru and then trained new hires after me. I then continued to do the same the next year at McDonalds with a whole new set of people. And in addition, because of my love of diving and wanting to help other divers, I also was hired as an assistant jr coach for PAC.
On the pool decks with my different dive team members, I also act as a leader by always encouraging and supporting other divers, especially the ones younger than me. For one of my clubs, I volunteered during the season to assist the coach with deck drills, dry land and some board practice. I especially loved to help improve their form on different dives and then see how pretty the dives became. I also spent some time developing a questionnaire for the divers to see where I could help each individual the most.
I always try to stay healthy to help my athletic performance as well as my student performance. I try to avoid the wrong foods and eat healthy; try to get as much sleep as possible and most importantly; I made a workout routine for my days not at the pool for me to do myself. I am pretty regimented and have alerts on my phone reminding me to workout if I should get too busy to remember.
I am involved in service to my community by being involved with my church youth group that I joined freshman year. We have the opportunity to do different service projects to help the less fortunate or needy. Some recent projects I have been involved with are serving food at the Trenton Soup Kitchen to the homeless who rely on the Kitchen to survive. Helping the Kitchen was very sad for me but fulfilling because I know I was helping in some way to give hope to others. Another project was sorting Christmas gifts donated from the more fortunate for the needy of our parish and the surrounding community. This made me feel awesome because I knew the end result of my efforts was going to put smiles on many faces.
