Prior to Diving:
I coach every week for kids starting diving ages 6-13. This allows me to not only be emerged in the diving environment, but also develop leadership qualities through the experience. Outside of the pool, I help tutor younger students in my high school library where I can make connections for the future.
As a potential engineering major, schoolwork is very important in my list of priorities. Currently I am on "Honor Roll" and taking "Advanced Placement" classes. I plan to excel in the "student" aspect of being a student athlete, but I also expect to dedicate much of my time in the pool diving.
Volunteering is an important part of learning leadership traits that develop character. I believe that philanthropic actions help yourself more than they help others. I volunteer at local organizations including: Carpenters Place, Rockford Rescue Mission, and frequently at Pregnancy Care Center Of Rockford.
