I want to continue to play the sport on a larger level. Playing in college with people from all over excite and motivate me to continue getting better. I also feel that I can contribute to a program and am willing to work hard to help advance the program as well as myself as a water polo player.
I am the oldest of four siblings, all of which play water polo. My three younger siblings all started water polo after I did and because I strongly encouraged them to join. Both in and out of the water, I help, advise, and encourage them. While at practice, I often pair up with my siblings, giving them advice on technique and skills. Practice at home is also led by me and always results in everyone learning and getting stronger. I also act as a regular older sister, giving them advice on how to deal with the stresses of school and explaining difficult concepts to them.
Although I very much consider the lessons I learn by playing water polo a part of my education, I have always put an emphasis to keep my grades up and doing well at school. By always being on top of my schoolwork, it allows me to completely focus on water polo when practices or games come up, instead of worrying about a five page paper that I have not finished. This allows me to not be as stressed, about school or water polo, and helps me preform better in both areas. Less stress on my part helps me retain more information from practice and makes me less likely to be injured while totally focusing on improving my game
I teach a Catechism class every week at my church to 5th graders. As an active Catholic, I believe that many people do not understand their own faith and are thus not interested in it. After attending a private school myself and taking a theology class, my faith grew exponentially. However, I don't think that waiting to learn about your faith until you are a freshmen in high school is a good thing, so I strive to educate those much younger than me so that they can understand and love their faith for longer than I have. This is so important to me because having a strong faith has helped me overcome many obstacles and I hope to give the same experience to others, especially those who are younger than me.
