Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I was elected by the student body and staff as Head Girl of our college for 2014, an example of leadership for me in and out of the water would have to be the fact that i am a swim teacher, lifeguard and I help coach some of the higher swimming levels at our pool. Teaching and passing on my knowledge of swimming is a way to give back to those who supported me in the community I live in.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I pursue healthy athletic performance by trying to lead a balanced life. Along with my training sessions during any given week I also have study after swim practice and work at the pool before hand. My days are pretty full on, with school during the day, academics, swimming, work and gym. Also I have to attend public events and make speeches. I also am involved in the cultural side of our school, I do speech and competed at a National Race Unity Speech competition coming 5th in New Zealand. I won best actress at our school in 2013 and 2014. Over all I believe in order to have healthy athletic performance in swimming you have balance in all areas of your life, not just sporting. Thats why I hold academia, cultural and service all very highly as avenues that help me to push my achievement to a higher level in swimming.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I am quite patriotic and wear my Grandfather’s service medals with pride. In 2014 shared this feeling with younger students by celebrating ANZAC commemorations through awareness by writing the names of the fallen around our high school. Creating something to give back to members of our fallen military/ soldiers.
I helped support the campaign to free the Nigerian girls through a ribbon day at school raising money and giving the funds to the cause.
In 2013 and 2014 I led the Relay for Life - a run for cancer awareness. I did this through organisation and promotion linking this to personal experience of cancer for a close family member.
I have also supported local community sports activities to help promote being active such as a 'Paint Fun Run' to make people aware of underprivileged community groups and the Toddlers Triathlon which gave back to the younger members of the community and promotes families involving their children in activity from an early age. I was also a member of the Young Leos (Lions) which is a service group within our high school - equivalent to school council level, raising money for the Salvation Army and giving them old clothes and food for people who need this help.
I also personally set up a service programme within my High School for a Retirement Home where senior students go into the home once a week and communicate with and talk to the elderly.

All of these efforts are hugely important to me as they help shape you as a person and as a role model to younger students and children in my town.
