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

I started becoming a very competive person at a young age. I played every board game like a TV game show where I could win money, and played any physical education game in school like it was an important championship in the big league.
I started dancing when I was about three years old and dancing basically everyday since I was fourteen. Dance was my life, until I started playing basketball and volleyball.
In sixth grade, I started playing basketball and that changed my whole life because that was the first time I actually was playing a contact sport, and starting to realize I wanted to keep playing some kind of sport until I physically can't. So I played on a recreational team in sixth and seventh grade. In seventh grade I tried out for my towns travel team, and played it for two years.
Then came high school where I played on two teams my freshman, sophomore and junior year. During high school, I started playing volleyball for the first time not in gym class and fell in love with the sport! Throughout high school, I started loving the sport more and more because I kept on learning new skills and terminology which I found interesting and helpful.
Then I was thinking about playing at a higher level, which means playing club. Freshman year I tried out for club, but didn't make it, but I didn't take it as a time to quit. I took it as an advantage to practice harder during the offseason. Sadly I couldn't try out for club my sophomore year because of an injury. Then junior year club season came, and I'm happy to say I'm having a successful club season!
I just want to keep on learning and keep on competing at a higher level! Sports has been a part of my life for a long time, and I don't want to end the sport I love so soon and that's why I would love to be recruited to play sports in college! I'm a very committed, organized student athlete who knows to use time management!

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.
-
Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

How I purse "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete is I do put school first since that's my number one priority because in today's world, you can't get anywhere without a successful school career. And you are a student-athlete, so school does come before sports.
Once it come to sports, I turn my whole focus to my coaches, trainers and teammates. The most important thing is I stay active all year round. Right now, I'm in a class called strength and conditioning which teaches us the proper technique for lifting and how to do different movements without getting injured while keeping everyone in shape with cardo workouts. Also, I make sure I don't overuse my body. So I make sure I eat healthy, and keep hydrated. Once I get home I make sure I ice anything that's bothering me and stretch before and after practice to make sure I don't get injured or get any muscle cramps.

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

I work at a special needs camp during the summer. The kids have special needs such as allergies, diabetes, ADHD, asthma, etc. This camp makes me realize that you have to make sure everyone is treated equal, and teaches me to be patience because some of the kids work slow, other work fast.
Also, my school just started a club in our school called Project F.U.N. which stands for Falcons Unifed Now. This club is help unify the special need students with the general education students. In this club, we work with the special education kids on projects and go on trips to the recreation center to help them stay fit and also go to the school activities like basketball games.
