I want to be recruited to dive in college because I love the sport but I also feel it is a great way to maintain balance in one's life. Diving in college will also allow me to take it to a high level. I am looking forward to all the great people I will compete with and the friendships I will forge. I am also looking forward to representing the University that I attend and making a difference on a college team.
I have been the Senior Patrol leader for 18 months in my Boy Scout Troop. I am leading a group of 25 boys to become great citizens. I have held a leadership position in my Boy Scout Troop and also at the District Boy Scout level in the Order of the Arrow for the last 5 years. As a Diver, I have strived to lead by example. I work very hard at each practice and made districts my freshman, Sophomore and junior year and to the State meet my Sophomore year.
I pursue healthy athletic performance by maintaining a balance between academics, athletics and other aspects of my personal life. I strive to give 120% at every practice and I always try to learn from my team mates and those who I compete against. I also review film and work with my coach on how to get better with every dive.
I have spent several years volunteering through Boy Scouts to help make my community better. I am an Eagle Scout and my project taught me the importance of being a good leader and giving back to the community. I have also spent almost 200 hours volunteering in my local community hospital assisting those going to surgery or dealing with cancer. I have also helped to collect food for the needy for the last 6 years. These three opportunities are important to me as I help people get through difficult times and help rebuild parts of the community. Finally, I have spent almost three hundred hours volunteering in research in the field of orthopedics trying to understand the implications of repetitive movement on the hand and how carpal tunnel disease develops. This is important to me as I see many people struggle with diseases of the hand and I want to help them prevent and recover from these orthopedic challenges.
