I have been rowing since the summer of 2014. I started out at Navesink River Rowing, rowing in a single with coach John Crilly. My freshman year I made the team and sculled in a novice quad in the bow seat. After a few seasons with NRR I quickly realized that my size was going to hold me back. However, with the love of the sport and knowledge I gained, I joined my H.S. team as a Coxswain in the spring of 2016. I coxed the mens JV 4 my sophomore year. We were a young boat, yet won all but one of our races, and were lucky enough to row in the Stotesbury Regatta as sophomores. I was the varsity coxswain for the 2016/2017 VG4+ and am very pleased with how we finished up our season. We are a small public High School with a relatively new program that does not recruit. We managed to put RFH rowing on the map this year as a serious competetive rowing team finishing state champions and 6th in the nation for scholastic crew. I am looking forward to what the future will bring.
As for academics I finished the school year with a cumulative GPA of a 4.12 and have a 1320 on the SAT.
Because I love what I do now and want to continue doing it through college.
I am involved with the student government at my H.S, I am an editor of our yearbook, I sing the national anthem at local community and H.S. event's and I am in charge of spirit week at my H.S. every year in October.
As a coxswain I have to work as a team, yet know how to lead, in order to guide my boat to success. I have to communicate on and off the water with my team to optimize everything we do.
I work out regularly and only cook and eat the best quality whole foods I can find. I also have my own garden where I grow, cook and eat much of the food in my diet. I believe in supplementing for energy and peak performance and do this through vitamins and carbo pro.
I have been volunteering at a local middle school for under privileged girls for the last six years, teaching them how to bake, cook, and sing. I also am involved in my church youth group and attend a one week charitable organization where I help re-build and renovate homes for those in need all over the east coast.
I am also involved in a stand up paddle charity benefiting our local children's hospital for the last two years where I volunteer on water and sing the national anthem.
Lastly, I have also been a guest chef for the nonprofit organization Good Folk Supper Club, where I planned and cooked for a party of 16. All proceeds of this event went to the charity of my choice.
