I greatly enjoy rowing and want to take my career to the next level. I have been working really hard at the sport, and want to continue this progress at a collegiate level.
As one of the senior members of the team, I often find myself thrust into leadership positions. One such example on the water is when I was put into a position as captain of my quad. As the captain, I was responsible for making sure we did all of our workouts during practice, and that all of us were fit and ready for race day. I also am currently placed in either stroke or bow positions in all my boats, and as such, I am responsible in large part for my boat. Off of the water, I was put in charge of organizing the our club's quarterly trash pickup. Our swathe of land is the largest, and it took a lot of work organizing the club into groups, and planning and directing these groups along their respective routes. It was not only a leadership opportunity for me, but also a good way to help the community through cleaning the large amount of trash that builds up throughout the months.
As a student-athlete, I find that there are many ways to gain a healthy athletic performance. For me, diet is one of the most important and I am always sure to not only get a healthy balance of food, but also ensure the food I am eating is unprocessed. Furthermore, I find it important to work out almost every day of the week, but it is equally, if not more important, to have recovery days so as to ensure peak performance and maximize athletic development. Through this, I am able to remain uninjured and to keep fit without becoming worn out.
I have always found volunteer work important, as they teach us to help others and build character. I volunteer throughout my community in multiple ways. One way is volunteering with my local mosque to feed the homeless lunch on certain Saturdays of the month. Furthermore, I have volunteered at the local food bank, and every summer I spend time volunteering at the local library. These volunteer opportunities have a special importance to me, as they are a simple and easy way to give back to the local community and also help me engage with people and polish my social skills, as well as generally leaving me with a good feeling.
