Personal Highlights

-HMHS chamber choir
-HMHS Madrigals (Renaissance singing group: first place in the Renaissance Faire)
-Haddonfield CoEd (student-run a capella singing group: I have absolute pitch and was recently nominated as music director for the 2017 school year)
•I participated in the Haddonfield Japan Exhange program in the summer of 2014, as well as hosted a Japanese sister over the summer of 2015.
•Prior to rowing, I was in musical theatre my whole life. I received multiple lead roles in my middle school productions and prestigious acting camps, and I was even awarded outstanding achievement awards for choir and drama in my middle school. I rowed and did drama club in my freshman year of high school, but I gave up drama because once I began rowing, it became my true passion.

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

Rowing has become a great passion of mine. Though I had done theatre for most of my life, I knew that when I joined the Learn To Row program for my school that this was what I wanted to do. I want to row in college so that I can continue doing what I love. I am extremely hard-working, and I will do anything I can to achieve my goals as an athlete. Being recruited for rowing is my main goal because this sport means everything to me; I put in so much time and effort wholeheartedly, growing stronger every day. Being recruited to row in college would show the coaches my true passion, dedication, and determination to become an excellent rower.

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

I am a very dedicated and determined athlete. I worked extremely hard in freshman year to build my way to the top. For example, I won gold in an indoor rowing race, fighting to the finish, even though I collapsed of dehydration afterwards. It was frightening, but I excelled with my teammates in the following seasons in the Freshman and JV8+ boat. I T rained even harder to make sure I would achieve my goals of breaking my PR on the erg. I became not only one of the strongest female rowers on my team, but I became the strongest girl lifter and one of the fastest runners. I was truly thankful that I put in so much work for not only myself, but for my team, for I broke my PR by over 10 seconds in about a year, and by 6 seconds in just three weeks. I plan to break my PR of 7:41.5 very soon.
It means so much to feel like I am a part of something big; the girls in my boat are like my family, and even though I'm the quiet one, I still take on a role of leadership. It opened my eyes when the seniors in my boat explained to me how dedicated, motivational, and hard-working I was. The girls who had inspired me when I first met them had looked up to me. I love my team, I help drive my girls forward, and I put all of my effort into every practice to insure that we are one stroke closer to victory. My team can count on me to bring 100% effort and positivity to practice, and they know I give it all I have during races.

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

I participate in crew during the fall, winter, and spring. I would like to also participate during the summer. To pursue healthy athletic performance, I train a lot, not only at crew practice, but outside of school. I participate in yoga classes, lift, and even run in my free time. I run a four-mile loop two or three times a week, depending on my rowing schedule. I also keep a balanced, clean diet to prepare myself for races in the future. In addition, I do meditation before races to trigger positivity and help me find my inner power. These factors truly help to enhance my performance.

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

I sang for the elderly and helped out at the retirement homes, packed utensils for a sandwich-packing drive, volunteered at a local 5k run, and I regularly volunteer at the Markeim Arts Center in Haddonfield, NJ. These efforts are important to me because it means so much to see those in need smile and get the help they deserve. It makes me feel very thankful and warm at heart when I help out, especially at the art studio, for I have a great passion for art. I have become friends with the art teachers, and they always tell me how much they appreciate me coming in to help when I do not have a regatta. It truly makes me happy to know that I am of importance and that I can help someone out.
