I was captain of the varsity basketball team my sophomore, junior, and now senior year, captain of the varsity soccer team my senior year, and captain of the track team my junior, and hopefully senior, year. On the field, I demonstrated leadership skills by leading our soccer team to its first ever second round playoff game, which unfortunately ended in a loss, becoming the first soccer team, in both girls and boys, to win a first round playoff game at my school. Being a member of the leadership club at my school, I helped organize a tutoring program for elementary students my junior year. Also, I have been an important leader in my engineering class, keeping track of the design and production of a battle robot that we have to build. I have demonstrated leadership off the field in both of those areas.
As a student-athlete, I pursue "healthy athletic performance" by remaining drug and alcohol free, getting the proper nutrition, and playing a variety of sports. Remaining drug and alcohol free is important for obvious reasons, and in order to do that, I surround myself with other people who believe the same thing. I am best friends with my teammates, who also choose to refrain from drinking alcohol and doing drugs. Getting the proper nutrition is also how I maintain my health. I understand that in order to have my top performance, I have to fuel my body with the right nutrients. I stay hydrated, rarely drink soda, and rarely eat fast food. Finally, playing a variety of sports instead of just one allows me to pursue a healthy athletic performance because I do not continuously use the same muscles. Though I do not have an offseason because soccer leads into basketball, which leads into track, which leads right back into soccer, I use different movements and muscles, so I do not overwork one specific group. I also have very good endurance from soccer, along with speed from basketball, and a combination of both from track.
I am involved in Make-A-Wish and the local animal shelter, Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley. I have helped organize fundraisers at my school for the past three years for Make-A-Wish and participate in dog walks for the animal shelter. Make-A-Wish is important to me because it helps relatively local children enjoy something that I might be able to in the future, but they might never get a chance to experience it due to their terminal illness. The animal shelter has a special place in my heart because not only do I have a shelter dog, but animals do not have a voice of their own. While humans have the ability to ask for help or even help themselves, animals do not, so giving them an opportunity to have a better life is important to me.
