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

It has always been my dream to be a college athlete and I will continue working hard to achieve my goal. I started playing in 8th grade and never played club until this summer. I feel that there is a lot of room for improvement in my golf game and that I can be competitive in a college field. I also feel that golf has been a more enjoyable experience in High School, however, I wish to bring my game to a more competitive level as I have done in my volleyball and dance career. I also love the social aspect of golf.

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

I have also played club and school volleyball for the past 9 years where I have been captain of my team every year. For this upcoming school year I was voted as National Honor Society President.

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

It is relatively easy to eat healthy and practice hard but being a balanced student athlete takes way more dedication and effort. I work hard to eat healthy, exercise, and get plenty of sleep. My grades are important to me so I have learned to use my time well so that I can succeed in both my academics and my sport.

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

During the summer I volunteer for The First Tee 3 days a week.
I have also been teaching Sunday school at Christ the King for the past 6 years. As being a part of the National Honor Society in my school we do many services for the community. Such as: food drives, clothing drives, park clean ups, and a teachers breakfast for their appreciation week.
