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

I have struggled at times in school. I have made mistakes and not managed my time well my Freshman and beginning of my Sophomore years. I feel that as I learn, through sports, how to perform better, it is reflected in my work ethic in school. I have worked hard to schedule my time wisely, often staying after school between the school day's end and practice to seek out extra help and do homework with my teammates. I feel that being a part of a team enhances my experiences. As my father was a D1 athlete, his experiences of traveling and challenging himself both on the baseball field and in the classroom, inspire me to work hard to achieve that goal of being a scientist.

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

As a 10th grader and new to my ice hockey team that combines school districts that are rivals in every other sport, I was asked to change to defense after spending my entire youth hockey career as a center/forward, as the team would need defensive players next year. I understood that I would not play much that year, but I took on the challenge for the betterment of the team. I reached out to experienced players and asked for help to develop my skills.
I volunteered to help out with equipment maintenance and my teammate's needs and wanted to be of service to my team and community. My HS does not know about our ice hockey team, so I help to spread the word and got some students to come to our games. I realized at the end of my 11th grade year that playing ice hockey, while enjoyable, would not best serve my future goals in the science field due the probability of having to play Juniors and delay my college entrance.
Now that I am a senior, I have focused my energies on becoming the best volleyball player that I can be and leading my team on and off the court. I want to play volleyball at a high competitive level in college and playing this past winter on a travel volleyball team, I focused and am succeeding in that goal. I believe my experiences as a baseball player from age 5-12, running track and participating in the high jump in AAU from age 8 to 10, playing ice hockey both at a recreational and high school level from age 4 to 16, swimming since the age of 2 and achieving my personal goal of becoming a lifeguard, and playing volleyball from ages 12 to today, I possess the cross sport skills and muscle development to be an asset to a college level team.

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

As the middle child of a family with five children, I have watched my older siblings work hard to be clean eating, alcohol and drug free athletes. Our performance in life and in sport are enhanced by staying healthy. I have a younger brother and sister and I am the "oldest of the youngest" so it is my responsibility to show them a healthy way of life and to respect my family. I also have a strong faith base and believe that we serve the world best through our humble service to mankind. Being honest, faithful and friendly helps me to perform at my best. I also enjoy music, I play cello, guitar and harmonica and sing for fun. I play video games and try to balance my sport, school, family and personal life and stay relaxed.

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

As a volunteer coach for from ages 12-16, I worked with at-risk youth in the City and County of Albany to share my love of ice hockey and sport. I also help to raise money for Breast Cancer with my volleyball team and volunteer to work with the Veteran's Miracle Center serving our military veterans. I help with field clean up at our local Little League and volunteer with the Black Theater Troupe Albany, NY as usher and greeter.
