Personal Highlights

I started traning with NAC (Newport) October' 2015 rowing in D- boat, went to Sacramento for regional championship in May' 2016 stroking the B-boat. Our boat won the prelim heat and we got third in final heat (by 0.04 from second place). To further improve my rowing skill, I joined the UCLA rowing camp this summer and had the opportunity to work with UCLA head coach: Amy Fuller Kearney.

Prior to rowing, I spent 10 years swimming with Mission Viejo Nadadores, was a varsity swimmer for my first 2 years of High School before I decided to join crew and earned scholar athlete recognition.

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

I have balanced academic/athletic pursuits starting 1st grade and believe that each has taught me different life lessons that have shaped who I am today. I've learned to manage my time, to want to excel, but also the joy of being a part of a winning team. I hav ealways been a part of a highly competitive sports club/program and am looking to join a college that will offer a similar academic/sports balance where I can continue to grow, perform at my best and share in successes for my team and college.

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

When I decided to change sport to rowing, I was very quickly (within 4 months of starting to row) appointed to the sroke position on the boat which requires my teammates to follow my rhythm and pace. I would often stroke during practice and was selected to stroke seat at the end of the season Regional State Championship regatta at Lake Natoma. Every time I sit on the stroke seat I feel responsible to drive the right pace and rhythm while gaining my team mates' trust that I will lead them to victory!
Ourside rowing, I enjoy trying new things such as new clubs or programs at school and my friends and team mates often follow my example and join me. I am also involved in a variety of community services (Eucharist Ministry, Festival of Arts, Dog adoption, Ocean Institute, AYSO, Feeding the homeless), and have enjoyed the experience of training, dealing and answering many questions from new trainees to these programs. I've had the opportunity of teaching adults on how to manage exhibits open to the public at the Ocean Institute to leading students with prayers and activities at feeding the homeless outings.

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

I try to be as organized as I can in balancing my school work and other activities so I have enough hours to sleep to feel great and to have great practice every day. Eating a healthy and balanced diet is also important to me so I can push myself physically and perform at my best in competition. I have been a part of a highly competitive sports club since I was 6 years old and have learned how important it is to balance rest with training as well as diet and state of mind in order to perform at my best levels.

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

I have participated in community activities through my school, church and sports club since I was 6 years old. Activities have caried from going to homeless shelters to feed the poor, visiting the elderly, supporting local events around drug prevention, visiting animal shelters, participating in environmental clean-up efforts and teaching environmental awareness at a local ocean institute to name but a few. All of these have shaped who I am and my views and what I want to do with my life. I have realized how fortunate I am and the amazing opportunities I have been given and I want to find a way to give back by understanding my environment, how we all (including animals) interact in that environment and how I can help protect/preserve the environment for all of us. This has now shpaed my chosen field of learning around the environment, animals and presevation and selection of colleges.
