Playing sports in high school played a large part in making me a well rounded teenager. Continuing to compete in college will not only set me up for success in my future career, but will help me forge incredible friendships as well. I do not have my sights set unrealistically. My goal is to attend the best college I can and become the best player I can while getting an excellent education. I am searching for the ideal school that is a match in every way...or at least a majority of ways.
On the field, I enjoy mentoring underclassmen. Events, like freshman night, gives us varsity players the opportunity to interact with incoming players and work with them on skills, techniques and give tips to help them improve.
Off the field, I am required to participate in many group projects. I enjoy leading in this setting. To me, leading doesn’t equate to being a dictator. I’ve learned that it’s about recognizing my peers strengths, motivating and helping them build the confidence to make their contributions the absolute best that they can be.
Studying in the BioMed program for the past 3 years has actually taught me a lot about the impact of nutrition on athletic performance.
I’ve learned that you are what you eat. Paying attention to what you consume can lead to things like improved cardiovascular health, better blood flow, and delivery of oxygen and blood pressure. This is why I pay special attention to the food choices that I make on a daily basis.
Healthy athletic performance also means the avoidance of performance enhancing drugs, and this is something that my teammates and I commit to.
Over the past few years, I have been involved in winter coat collections for underprivileged and homeless. It gets to triple digits where I live, so some forget that the temperature drops drastically in the winter. It's important to participate in this because there are kids in parts of our city who can’t go outside to play when the temperature drops because they don't have coats or the ones they do have are worn out. When kids receive coat donations, they can go outside without having to worry. They can just be kids and play.
