Competing at US Nationals-Stroke in the quad June 2019--
I love rowing and want to continue to pursue my passion for as long as possible.
I have been the "stroke" in my boat several times. The stroke demonstrates leadership by setting the pace, encourging and making sure each athlete is doing their best.
In becoming an Eagle Scout, I had to demonstrate leadership to get the job started, approved and complete. I had to reply on many people and demonstrate how to do some of the tasks and keep everyone on task to compelete the job.
Another less thought of way of leadership is to encourage others to do the right thing. I try to do this in all aspects of my life.
I am extremely careful in my eating and work-out habits. I work very hard to get better all the time and do not want to put in jeopardy my skills.
I continue to serve my Community in many ways. I am an Eagle Scout and have done everything from raising money for the dog pound, to serving veterans, picking up Christmas Trees to creating a fence for the Community Garden (which supplies fresh vegetables to the Food Bank). Through my Church, I have served the homeless, made pies for the food bank, served food to the elderly as well as worked within the congregation helping our elderly (like washing cars and caroling). I also went for a week to Washington DC to rebuild homes in disrepair for those who could not. Through the Children of the American Revolution I have supported the less fortunate 'Mountain Schools" and done several projects for "Kids helping Kids" like making Easter baskets for the under privileged and making birthday boxes for a Women's shelter in addition to raising donations for veterans and many other projects. I have also volunteered at an International Camp working in the kitchen and helped children to learn of their heritage.
