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

I have always had a passion for basketball and no matter what, I know that it will be a part of my life after high school. Especially recently, I have been very successful in tournaments and high school ball, and am hungry to take my abilities to the next level and play in college.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

In 2019 I was one of two juniors on my varsity basketball team with our only senior being injured. I led our team through positive energy at all times, and making sure I had a strong individual relationship with every member of the team. I have also been in my school's chorus since 2nd grade, and since the start of high school, I have led the Bass and Men's sections of chorus. I help my fellow chorus teammates with finding the right pitches, and sometimes they help me as well. I was recently elected President of High School Chorus for 2019-2020.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I had always been a generally healthy person, but recently (spring 2019) I have begun to seriously look at everything that comes into contact with my body. Whether it be food, training, or even sunscreen, everything I do now with my body is intentional in ensuring that I will perform at my best on and off the court.

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

In March of 2019 I went to Capetown, South Africa to share basketball with less privileged communities. In addition to teaching basketball, I also was able to perform magic for the kids and communities, bringing joy and wonder to their hearts and mine. The trip inspired me to encourage open, deeper conversations in my community about social justice and how we can use our naturally given privileges to help others.
