As noted above, I feel that I am happiest when I have academic/athletic/friends/family interaction in my life. I love lacrosse and I know that I will crave the camaraderie and competitive nature of the game while I am away at college. While I seek a college that will be academically challenging, I know that lacrosse and the team dynamic is an important part of my life that will help me to better focus on my studies.
My favorite class in my schedule is my iLead class. In this class we explore various projects and organizing events for the betterment of the community. I feel that my style of leadership enables me to help the class come up with great projects that promote both growth and community improvement.
As a student athlete I pursue "healthy althletic performance" by balancing my various activities while ensuring a continued focus on my academic studies. I feel that a well balanced life leads to personal growth and promotes positive results in all areas of my life that I feel are important. For instance, I am very focused on my academics, but I also feel that I need to spend time working out and practicing my athletic skills as well as balancing that with family and friend time. While at times it may seem to be a lot, I find that a good balance is what makes me happiest as a person and enables me to compete to the best of my ability.
I have volunteered for a local non-profit for the last 5 years as a mentor for students with disabilities. The program is designed to assist children with special needs to participate in organized sports. Many times these students don't have the muscle tone nor the emotional IQ to participate and fit into organized sports. As a volunteer mentor in this program I encourage the students to do the specified activity, and I also provide a model for appropriate behavior. I also train new mentors in the program. This summer I am looking forward to being a research assistant for the director in his research into brain mapping. This is my inspiration for my future studies.
