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

I love crew, and I love the camaraderie that comes along with it. I cannot imagine what my high school experience would be like if I had never decided to join the team freshman year, as crew has become the most important part of high school for me. I've made best friends and some of my best memories sitting (or lying down) in the boat. I love the water, I love the sport, I love going fast, and I want to be recruited for crew so I can continue this passion on in college.

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

As a coxswain, I serve as a leader every day in the boat. This sport has taught me how to lead by example and make split-second decisions for the benefit of the whole boat, to earn the trust of others and be someone they want to follow. My teammates depend on me to be honest and get them where they need to go, so each and every day when I step into the boat I try to absorb that responsibility and assume leadership. Additionally, as mentioned above, out of the boat, I am the director of the leadership committee of Generation Impact. This role requires constant and open communication, as I serve as the link between the members and the Directors, Generation Impact and Impact, Generation Impact and the nonprofits applying for our grant, and finally Generation Impact and corporate sponsors and donators. I created the leadership committee, coordinate each leadership meeting, drive membership, and manage the financials. I've learned that as a leader, you can't do it all, and so finding other leaders and standouts to delegate to is a vital skill. Thus, serving as a leader both on and off the water has taught me vital skills.

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

As a student athlete, my most difficult obstacle to success in both arenas is my own mentality. When school gets overwhelming, I sleep too little and struggle to function. Managing crew on top of school has thus forced me to become more efficient and served as a form of stress release. The second I step into the boat, I push school out of my mind and focus on the present and the tasks I need to accomplish on the water. Most importantly, I have practiced Transcendental Meditation for the past 3 years, twice a day for 20 minutes. This time to myself is such an important break within the chaos of a day to quiet my own thoughts and focus on my mental health, and I would recommend it to anyone. I also strive to stay active for my own sanity; I regularly dance, bike, spin, and do yoga, and try to stay healthy despite my affinity for cheeseburgers.

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

Last year, I founded Generation Impact FFC, a 501(c)(3) program of Impact FFC for young women in Fairfield County. I developed this program through Girls with Impact, a entrepreneurial class for high school girls, and brought my vision to life in the past year. Based off of Impact FFC, Generation Impact is a collective giving circle of high school girls centered around education and thoughtful giving towards a youth-focused local nonprofit. To join, each girl donates $100, 100% of which will go towards the final grant (We offset out general operating costs through donations and corporate sponsors). With 100 girls, we can give $10,000. Through our three annual events, the Big Learn, the Big Review, and the Big Give, we first teach how to review a grant applications, including aspects such as the budgets, then sit down and review the applications that we receive throughout the fall. At the big review, we'll put three to four finalists forward, which we will conduct site visits for and then vote on collectively in April to determine the winner and make a significant impact on our community. (You can learn more at https://www.generationimpactffc.org/). Generation Impact is a HUGE part of my life and is so so rewarding. Although we are just getting started, the ability to create a model that will positively affect my community for years to come is both thrilling and humbling. The ability to give thoughtfully is a lifelong skill, and I hope my efforts to spread this skill to the next generation of female leaders will have far-reaching consequences in the future.
