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.

Within my team, I always try my best to lead by example. My goal is to be the person who is always at practice, always has a positive attitude, and always brings that little bit of determination to the team atmosphere. I always open myself up to the younger girls and give them my little bits of wisdom, and I always try to be a role model when it comes to my work ethic. When we’re erging as a team, we have about three rows of ergs, and every time we do a piece I think about the girls behind me who are watching my splits like I watched the seniors’ splits when I was a freshman, and how I can’t possibly expect them to push themselves if I don’t push myself even more. They motivate me as much as I hopefully motivate them.
Off the water, I’m involved in many leadership positions. I’m president of the Community Service Council, Vice President of ESJ for Animals, Secretary of the National Honor Society, and I’m on the leadership team for a student organization called the Eagle Ambassadors, which is a group of students on campus that help the admissions office recruit and welcome new students. Being involved in all of these organizations has taught me how to effectively lead a group, how to take charge, and how to rally support for a cause. I’ve improved my people skills greatly since taking on these roles.

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

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

I am the president of my school’s community service council, and the work I’ve been able to do in this position so far has been incredibly rewarding. My job as president is to get people in my community excited and involved in community service by finding opportunities that anyone can get involved in, and seeing the effect this has had on the community has been beautiful to see. I love being involved in my community, and I’m very thankful to have the opportunity to get others to join me.
