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.

Off the field, I have been building my leadership skills. Last May I was named Vice President of Rio Recycles, a student-run club on my campus that maintains recycling bins, collects and turns in bottles and cans for cash, and then donates our monthly earnings to different programs on campus, like the band or Aquatic Boosters. I am also a natural leader in the classroom and often find myself taking charge of group projects. Since entering high school, I've earned the nickname "Mom," which I feel mirrors my responsibility, critical thinking, and leadership skills. On the water (in my case), I am working on developing into a leadership position. I've been lucky to have rowed alongside great upperclassmen these past two years at UNRC. Thanks to them, I have a good example of how to lead the Varsity Women next year as a senior.

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

In my opinion, "healthy athletic performance" isn't just fitness or nutrition, it encompasses the whole athlete. By this I am referring to the the mental and even ethical aspects of sports, which are a big deal in rowing. Rowing is one of the most physically and mentally challenging sports out there; so, to be a competent rower, a healthy body and a strong mind are necessary. Rowing also upholds its reputation as one of the classiest sports around. With a smaller community of athletes, you get to know other rowers and can form lasting friendships. After a race there's always a "Good race all crews," or even the traditional swapping of tanks. Pursuing a "healthy athletic performance" is preparing yourself for what you know your sport will challenge you with, respecting the importance of fitness, and working hard to be a physically and mentally sound athlete. I make a significant effort at this pursuit everyday; it's as easy as going all out at practice, getting enough sleep, and eating right. What's most important to me, though, is being a supportive teammate and always giving 110% effort.

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

As a part of the Civitas program, I became involved in community service. My 200+ hours were earned working in a variety of positions. Significant positions include: Camp Counselor at the Sacramento Zoo's "Zoo Camp" in the summer of 2014, as a preschool assistant at Good Shepherd Preschool in the summer of 2013, and as a volunteer on the Peter Tateishi for Assembly campaign in the fall of 2012. This fall, my friends and I began making blankets for teenagers at a local hospital. We meet each month for a few hours and have since donated over 20 blankets. Another favorite community service activity of mine has been the American River Parkway Clean-up, a bi-annual event that gathers the community to pick up garbage along the American River. Many people view community service as a burden, but giving back and serving others is truly a part of our civic duty.
