Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

As a dedicated student, team member and volunteer, I am optimistic, goal oriented and very dependable. I enjoy learning and meeting new people. I am currently committed to a personal goal of becoming a pediatric neurologist because I am passionate that science and medicine can improve lives around the world. I am sensitive to the needs of our local community, whether we need more public services or protecting Florida's natural resources. I want to discover new ways that student leaders can improve the lives of others and have a voice in shaping the future of Tallahassee because I truly care about our community.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.
-
Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.
