I have always been an athletic person -- never not playing at least one sport at a time. I stopped playing soccer and when I started rowing I realized that I could have future with this. I love rowing and being active and I am also really looking forward to having a full college life experience. Playing sports in college, for me, means that you not only get to do what you love almost everyday, but the people who share that interest are also sharing everything else with you. Going from high school into college is a big change that comes with challenges, but when you can be a part of a tight knit group of athletes who are going through the same exact thing, the college experience becomes great.
I pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete by staying connected with my teammates and myself and also by trying to make every practice the best practice. I'm sure you want to hear about how I'm determined, strong, and coachable...and I do believe I am all of those things, but that would only be part of how I strive for "healthy athletic performance". Everyday when I am at practice we do different workouts and it's hard, but what is running through my head during those pieces is the fact the I can't let my teammates down. I love and respect them too much. Over the last season I became varsity and have created such strong bonds with the other varsity rowers that we even spend time together outside of rowing. I believe that having these relationships makes me a stronger and more confident rower and therefore I can strive to pursue "healthy athletic performance".
