I love the sport of lacrosse and find that being a student-athlete forces me to be more disciplined about time use.
I was elected captain of my school's cross country team this year. I am also the project manager for our STEM program's NASA Mars Rover project this year, managing multiple sub-teams to design and build a human powered vehicle we will take to the competition at NASA's Huntsville, AL campus. However, my greatest leadership challenge has been walking away from the sport I love and not playing lacrosse my senior year after one of my closest friends on the team died in a drug related incident. Our team has had drug use problems, and to protest the failure of our coaches and school leaders to adequately deal with them, I am one of a group of players who decided to not play this season. While that will probably hurt my chances of playing in college, it was definitely the right thing to do.
See above...But also eat right, get enough sleep, play more than one sport (for me, it is cross country and skiing besides lax), and ensure that other players, especially new players, are supported.
My service projects are done through my membership in the National Honor Society. As a member of the first class of Advanced Manufacturing Apprentices in Colorado's CareerWise state apprenticeship program, I work 24 hours/week at an advanced optical technology company.
