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

I want to be recruited for volleyball for many reasons, my love of volleyball and wanting to continue playing since I started 6 years ago. I love the competitive atmosphere that higher level sports bring, but also the community and being one big volleyball family. College sports had always seemed like the right choice even when I was young watching volleyball on my TV. It's always been a dream and passion of mine hat I whole heartedly want to pursue.

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

Leadership is a quality that has always come natural to me. I've always been the one to step up and be in control. On the court, I am a team captain and love being the one that other players look up to and can turn to if they have a quick question or need advice. When our team is down a few points, I look to always keep a positive mind and encourage. But leadership doesn't stop when coming of the court. Often at my church I would help with the younger kids during religion and help the teacher as need be. I love to communicate with the kids and lead them in the best possible direction. Helping teach classes and bring kids to and from sessions taught me a lot about being a leader, but also always being a positive role model.

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

As a student athlete, there is always something to do. Homework, practice and keeping a healthy diet are some of the many things to consider. Academics are always first, I always make sure that my homework, projects and tests are planned out to never miss an assignment. Planning my homework around practices has made it a lot easier to balance work and volleyball. But health starts from within, and a healthy diet is very important to me and something I take very seriously. I always make sure I eat balanced meals and snacks throughout the day to maintain the proper nutrition to get through the long school days and practices.

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

In my community I volenteer a lot. I currently volenteer at the Chamber of Commer at New Paltz and often volenteer at many local and county events throughout the year. I feel it is very important to volenteer because you meet amazing people and expierce many great memories that are truly priceless. Giving back to your community is far more than just serving food, or cleaning up after an event. It's meeting the beautiful people in your community and creating bonds and friendships that are unique in their own ways. Giving back to the community and town that raised you is a true honor that has shaped me into the person I am today.
