Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
  • The sense of community and support my teammates give each other has helped me achieve my academic goals every season. We all try to help each other on and off the water. Our club is a community team, not affiliated with one particular school, so we work extra hard to support each other as we travel a lot to get to practices and regattas. This real sense of "team" is something that I would like to continue to have in college
  • I love the thrill of competing and the challenge of pushing myself and others around me in order to achieve the best results
  • Rowing has had such a huge impact on my life from making me stronger both physically and mentally to showing me how to be a good teammate and a better person in the community that I can't imagine not being involved with the sport in some way after high school
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Leader on the field
* Very active in Learn to Row clinics
* Make a point of getting to know the new and younger rowers, especially the newer coxswain
* Help set up tables and tents for the fundraisers
* An active participant in training the new coxswain on the water
* Started a cheering section comprised of varsity rowers for the middle school racers

Leader off the field
* Freshman Year- President of the Young Athletes Club (elementary school portion of Special Olympics),
* Guide on in LET1 AJROTC class (leads squadron in marching and represents class in corps-wide meeting with higher authorities, expected to lead by example in both conduct and academics)
* Aide at Camp Green Cove, which involved planning and leading 5 weeks of overnight wilderness backpacking trips for girls of all skill levels, as well as looking after an assigned group of younger campers in the cabin and helping to run in-camp activities
* Vice President of my school's National Honor Society chapter

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.
  • Hydration is very important, I carry around a 32 ounce Nalgene of water and try to drink three throughout the school day
  • Make a point of eating complex carbs, vegetables, fruits, proteins and other energy efficient foods in order to ensure that my body is getting the fuel it needs to build muscle and exercise safely
  • I have a personal goal of improving flexibility this year and will stretch on my own time
  • Balance school work with crew work by bringing homework to regattas and staying on top of my classes by maintaining good working relationships with my teachers so that both of us know what is expected of me in school and on the water
  • Avoiding "all-nighters"... sleep is paramount to a good performance academically and physically
  • Maintaining a positive and supportive relationship with my teammates... chances are, if one of us is struggling, somebody else has the tools to help
Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I enjoy working with the elementary school Special Olympics setting up obstacle courses and encouraging the younger athletes. It gives me a sense of pride watching the kids having fun while learning skills that would likely come easily to most of us. I also enjoy feeding the homeless in our Church of the Advocate. Asheville has grown tremendously and the rents have risen so much that there are a lot of people who cannot afford homes here anymore. It makes me feel more aware of the economic and psychological effects of gentrification in Asheville. Finally, leading and planning the backpacking trips for young girls this summer showed me how kindness coupled with authority can help girls who have never been in the woods overnight before overcome their fears.
