I have many friends and family members who were and are student athletes in college. I am passionate about field hockey and I aspire to play at a high level. I want to continue playing after high school. My parents both played sports in college. Their closest friends are their former college teammates. They have very close relationships, and I have become part of those relationships as well through family functions, vacations, camping trips, and more. I enjoy being part of a family atmosphere, and my teammates will become another family for me when I am away at school.
I have demonstrated leadership on the field by being a good teammate. I try to help those players on my team that have trouble with certain drills or techniques. I will show them what they are doing wrong and help them to correct their mistakes. I also display good sportsmanship, I do not argue with referees or coaches. I am respectful of my own teammates and coaches as well as the other team's. I work hard in practice and do not miss practices. In past years I have helped organize off season "captain's practices" even though I was not a team captain at the time. I know it is important to get my teammates together on our own and work on our skills in order for our team to be successful. Last year I was selected to be a team captain, and I believe all of the above mentioned things contributed to being chosen a captain, not only for my field hockey team but my lacrosse team as well. Being a leader also means being a good student. I work just as hard with my academics as I do with sports. I have always taken honors or AP courses and have worked hard to maintain a 94 average in school and as a result I have been induced into the National Honor Society. I have also been elected Class Officer in all three years that I have attended Williamsville North and I have been selected to attend three different youth leadership camps and represent Williamsville North.
I think this means having a good balance of things. I eat healthy foods and drink lots of water. I do not drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. I exercise even if I am not playing a sport. I attend extra clinics and camps to improve my skills and be a better player. I try to get plenty of sleep and rest too. It can be hard to play sports, practice and still do homework and study. I try my best to manage my time wisely and get my school work done on time. All of these things help me pursue a healthy athletic performance.
It is important to give back to the community however you can. Something as simple as spending time helping someone like a fellow student, a young athlete, or even a coach or teacher can make a difference in someone's life.
I have served as an Ambassador for the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Organization. (HOBY) I have attended HOBY leadership camp at the University of Rochester. We performed a community service project there by cleaning up a local cemetery. I have also organized and collected items for Crossroads House, an organization that provides care for those with severe health or medical problems in nearby Wyoming County, NY. I organized dates within my club field hockey organization and collected numerous items such as food, cleaning supplies, toiletry items, and cleaning supplies and I ended up making a very large donation to Crossroads House.
I am the President of my High School's LEAP Club- an environmental awareness and protection group. I have helped coordinate and have worked at several electronic waste drop off dates in my community.
In past summers I have volunteered to help run my church's annual parish picnic. I spent the day of the picnic helping in the kitchen. I did whatever job needed to be done; food preparation, set-up, clean up, or anything else that needed to get done. The picnics were a huge success and hundreds of people attended and had a great time. I am proud that I worked hard and was able to help my parish have such a great day.
I also have volunteered and worked at the Akron (NY) July 4th Celebration. Akron NY is my mother's home town and I have grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who live and work there. I have spent a lot of time there too, so I was happy to volunteer in Akron. I supervised a bounce house and had to make sure only a certain number of young children were on the bounce house at one time. I also had to make sure the children were behaving and not being reckless or dangerous so that nobody got hurt. Many children had a great, safe time and I am glad I was able to help make that happen.
I have also volunteered time for my Varsity and Club Coach Dalton Beaver. I volunteer at after-school intramural field hockey at Heim Middle School. I enjoyed helping the younger students with their skills and building their interest in playing field hockey.
