-Rowing is my passion. I want to be able to row at the most competitive level possible for as long as possible. College is the next step along this road to achieving the perfect stroke and the lowest split on the erg possible.
-My favorite part about training for Youth Nationals this year was being able to wake up before anyone else in my family was awake and going out on the water in order to participate in the sport that I truly love. In college, I would be able to experience this sensation almost everyday.
-Also, it teaches perseverance, leadership, and time management skills. For me personally, these skills have crossed over into the classroom and allowed me to be a successful student thus far in my career. Rowing clearly seems to be my key to success both inside and outside of the classroom.
-As a student-athlete, I constantly have to balance between rowing, school work, and sleep. School work always comes before rowing, but homework never comes before sleep. Sleep is important to both athletic and academic performance and that is why I always try not to compromise the amount of sleep I get each night. (between 8-9 hours) Also if I have to miss a practice because of school I always do a makeup erg workout to ensure that my fitness stays up to par with where it is suppose to be. My balance between rowing and school work is 50-50 for the most part because I have learned how to better manage free time during the school day. In order to catch up or get ahead on academics; I usually bring my lunch into my teacher's room in order to be able to eat healthfully while also receiving tutoring. By making my schedule efficient I am able to keep a near perfect balance between rowing and school without compromising performance by losing sleep, and this is how I achieve a healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete.
