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

I love playing volleyball, the team atmosphere, and hope to earn scholarships to help pay my way through college.

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

On my RCVC 152 club team, as Team Captain, I lead discussions in the team group chats to keep all players included and updated on practices and other team events.
At school, I am a very responsible student often called upon by teachers to help teach subject matter during teacher absences (InfoSec I CyberSecurity class), and to assist in the classroom with mentoring other students who are having difficulty with course material (math, science).
Middle School Volleyball Team Captain 2016-2017
Team leader for Cyber Patriot IX Team (2017)
Team leader for Cyber Patriot VIII team (state champions, 2016)
Coach's assistant - RCVC 171 (2014)

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

I practice solid training year round, starting with stretching, aerobic exercises, strength training, skills and position drills, and focusing on proper form during drills and scrimmages to help prevent injuries. I also maintain proper nutrition and hydration during the season and training. I practice good nutrition year round, and focus during the season on ensuring I eat proper energy foods before and during practices and especially during long tournaments for stamina.

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

I support our community by volunteering with free volleyball clinics (Sep/Apr) to help build the next set of volleyball players to join us in the future. I support my school by helping set up and maintain the JV and Varsity Volleyball Team Websites to keep parents and community updated on our Teams' activities. I volunteer in the community through various short service projects for our deployed military troops, local area food banks, and girls athletic/mentoring activities (Girls On The Run of North Alabama) to help make others' lives better and to help improve girls' confidence and physical conditioning.

Girl Scouts - Silver Award - Project "Making Sleeping Mats for the Homeless" 2016 - I lead a team project to make 5 sleeping mats for our local homeless people (donated through the Downtown Rescue Mission) to give the people living on the streets a dry, clean and more comfortable thing to sit or sleep on.

Girl Scouts - Bronze Award - Writing letters to Servicemen 2015 - Our troop wrote letters to Service members deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan to let them know we appreciate their service and that people here at home are thinking of them, especially during the holiday season.
