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

Since I am passionate about and dedicated to training for running, cycling, swimming, and triathlons, I cannot imagine my life without sports at the college level. I believe the opportunity to be on a college team will allow me to meet other students with a common interest. As a high-school student-athlete, I have learned valuable life skills such as how to
balance my time, how to work with others as a team, and how to handle both success and failure. These are all traits that I hope to continue to develop even further as a collegiate student-athlete, which will help be prepared when I am ready to pursue a career. Also, playing a sport in college is a good way to help reduce stress and take a break from all the studying and homework.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.
-
Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

One of my most significant strengths in pursuing "healthy athletic performance" is being mentally tough. I believe that having mental strength to overcome stressful circumstances makes all the difference in being a student-athlete. Personally, I tend to be more successful by keeping most of my problems to myself, so it is not immediately apparent how much mental strength I need to have. As a national level triathlete, I train six to seven days a week, which can get really difficult. I have the physical ability to train as much as I do, but it is mentally vigorous. I believe that triathlon has made me into a better person because I am stronger mentally. Additionally, I am a very independent person. This quality has helped me in all aspects of my life. I am able to handle many problems that arise by myself, and I am able to help others regardless of my own issues that I face. I believe that my independence has especially helped me as a student-athlete because I am able to use my resources to figure out uncertainties on my own.

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

As a youth volunteer, I have the opportunity to work side by side with other teens in a kitchen to create delicious and nourishing meals for families in my community who are dealing with a health crisis. I work alongside adult mentor chefs to prepare, cook and package these meals that are then delivered to people in the community. Working at Healing Meals Community Project is a wonderful experience and is important to me for many reasons. I have the opportunity to work with teens from different towns, learn new cooking skills, meet great people, contribute to my community, and learn about how food choices influence personal wellness. Families are nourished and supported and my community is strengthened by these efforts.
