Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I want to be recruited to play sports in college because my first love is volleyball, and I want to be able to play to the highest level of my potential. Volleyball has given me so many opportunities, and I want it to continue to do the same as the recruiting process continues.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Off the court, I present leadership by being a part of anti-bullying organizations at school. Since 6th grade, I have been a part of "Friends of Rachel," an organization linked with Rachel's Challenge, which is a very helpful, impacting, and relevant anti-bullying organization. As a result, I am able to offer great advice and help to others, whether I am friends with them or not. Whenever I see an issue, or if I see that someone is giving someone else a hard time, I am easily able to step in and get involved in a positive manner. On the court, I present leadership by having a positive attitude and by having great body language. During my junior season, my coaches chose me to be one of the four captains, in which there were 3 seniors and me. It's easy to say that everyone has off days, and that sometimes people struggle. Because of my positive attitude and energy, I am able to lift people out of their bad attitude, and I can empower them and encourage them to pick their heads up, and make sure that they are doing whatever they can to impact the team positively. When I struggle, I do not let it get to me, and I continue to play the way I know how to, and I continue to have great body language, because I feel that your performance reflects off of your body language.

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

I pursue "healthy athletic performance" by eating healthy, drink a lot of water and staying hydrated, getting a reasonable amount of sleep, managing my time efficiently, and working out regularly. When I eat, I pay attention to all of the major components in food, such as ingredients, fats, carbohydrates, sodium, calories, sugar, vitamins, calcium, and potassium. I also stay under a certain amount of calories based off of the amount of physical activity and exercise I get that day. Whenever I eat, I make sure to drink a good amount of water. Although I have to balance school, homework, volleyball, and a job, I make sure that I am able to get a reasonable amount of sleep each night, while maintaining good grades, a great volleyball performance, and a strong work ethic while working.

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

Every year around the time of my high school volleyball season, I volunteer at my local senior center to serve lunch to all of my elders who attend the annual monthly luncheon. Myself, as well as five or six other teammates of mine, volunteer once or a few times, depending on our schedules. These efforts are important to me because it gives me a chance to interact with people that I barely know, and build relationships (to say the least) with the people that I see at these luncheons all the time. Serving at the luncheons also gives me the opportunity to be kind to others, and it makes me able to make people smile and have the great day that they deserve. I have also learned that not everyone is able to do the same things that I am able to, considering that there are several handicapped citizens, whether it'd be physically or mentally, so helping my elders is important to me.
