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

I want to be recruited to row in college because of my unwavering love for the sport of rowing. It is a sport that has truly challenged me to reach new physical and mental heights that I wouldn't have known that I am capable of reaching without rowing. It has strengthened my work ethic and sense of determination and has shaped me into the person I am today. The bond and trust that I have felt with my teammates in the boat is what makes rowing so special and makes me want to pursue the sport at the collegiate level. I am an excellent candidate for any collegiate rowing team with my upbeat and positive attitude, ability to thrive in leadership positions, and my unwavering work ethic.

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

I demonstrate leadership in the boat by always giving my coaches feedback after drills and pieces, and keeping an upbeat and positive attitude to allow for a more productive environment among my teammates. I also demonstrate leadership by rowing in stroke seat or stern pair. For example, I served as stroke seat for my team's first Varsity 8+ at the 2016 Head of the Hooch regatta. I demonstrate leadership off the water and in the classroom by serving as a Student Council representative. I often lead class meetings and receive feedback on events planned by the council as well as feedback about the school's legislation and environment from the students to create the most inclusive student government that I can.

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

I actively pursue healthy athletic performance every day by staying very conscious of my nutrition and consistently asking myself if what I am eating will allow me to perform to my best ability. Every day I also maintain a daily water intake of 96 ounces or more to avoid dehydration and fatigue in the boat. After practice I make sure I stretch and roll out any muscles that may be giving me discomfort and I always ice any sore or inflamed joints and muscles to prevent injury.

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