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

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

I was selected by the members of my team to be a team captain. While at the boathouse, it is important that I make sure everything transitions and moves smoothly. I ensure this is the case through reasonable discipline and incentive, which occasionally provides a challenge when my teammates are defiant to my authority. Outside of practice, I organize functions to make sure everyone on the team knows that our team promotes a friendly and all-inclusive social environment. There are also other secondary responsibilities off the water, including making sure my teammates have a means of transportation and are aware of what is happening during events.

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

There is a reason why "student" comes before "athlete" in the term "student-athlete." It is important not only to make sure all academic work gets completed in (and often outside of) the classroom. I understand and respect that sometimes it is even necessary to sacrifice practice time to complete schoolwork. However, through focus, hard work, and intelligent allocation of time, this can surely be avoided. It is important to use any available time to work efficiently, and, if possible, to work ahead. Furthermore, in order to maintain athletic performance, I make necessary time to eat, drink, and get an appropriate amount of sleep every night. If an athlete is unable to stay healthy, he or she will not be able to perform well in the boat, which hinders the ability of the other athletes in that boat to perform. Healthy athletic performance, therefore, is best achieved through time management.

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

Most of the service opportunities I pursue relate to diabetes education. One organization I frequently do work for is the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), which specializes in educating parents of newly-diagnosed diabetic children the basics of managing and living with the disease while conducting research toward making life easier and finding a cure. I have taken part in several events that raise money for research and have helped educate others on the disorder. As both an athlete and a diabetic myself, I feel that it is very important to make sure others are educated to spread awareness and make sure people are prepared to react in the event of a diabetic emergency.
