One of my field hockey team mates was diagnosed with an eating disorder. Our team began an annual tournament called "I Am Beautiful," which I co-chair. It is a game against our local rival school (who is not part of our regular schedule but agreed to play), followed by an alumni game. We raise money to donate to Hershey Medical Centers eating disorder clinic. I help the incoming players understand the importance of working hard to become better athletes, but to always take care of themselves and help their team mates in need. I feel it makes us a stronger team on the field.
I try to eat right and balance my full schedule to ensure I stay rested and healthy. My grades are very important to me, so I always have study time scheduled. I train year round and maintain a mix of field hockey skills training with strength and conditioning. I try to mix up my workouts from the gym to outdoor activities to group activities to keep it fun. I also try new workouts to keep it fresh and interesting.
This year I was selected to participate in a service leadership program in my area. Each month we spent a day learning about important needs in our community and how we can serve. I co-chaired our main event, a basketball tournament to benefit the Make A Wish foundation. We involved students from area school districts and raised thousands of dollars! I felt like we made a difference and it made me want to do more! I volunteer for many community events, including Relay for Life, changing flags in the cemetery for Veterans, serving meals at the shelter, playground cleanup, and field hockey clinics for underprivileged children. We learned that it is important to share your time, talent and treasure (money) with those in need. That is what I try to do.
