Life has thrown some nasty curve balls. I had the choice to dig in and get through it all, or give up. I never give up.
Rowing has taught me the importance of self-discipline and commitment to and respect for others, and has been a remarkable conduit for my personal competitiveness. Rowing in college would give me a continuation of all of these things, but at a higher level.
To be a leader on my team, I continuously maintain communication with my teammates, and make sure that we are all working together to make improvements. It is also important to me that everyone on the team feels included and motivated, so I continue to support my team every day.
At the age of 14, I was selected to be a youth leader on a climate science and conservation research trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for a month. We paddled 80 miles down the Ivashak River, studying about the sacred lands and climate change. I returned to the Arctic the following summer for a 130-mile deployment along the Chandalar River with the Gwichin Tribe, and have spent time with the Quinault Tribe in Washington and Navajo Nation leaders in Utah. Our goal with these deployments is to take that information to communities in the Pacific Northwest to advocate for lands in danger of being impacted. Our deployments were commissioned by Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and documented in films (most recent at https://youtu.be/uSK5n7YC4_o).
To pursue healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete, I make sure that I maintain good nutrition, consistently stay active in a variety of athletic activities, and focus on taking care of my body and mind. I maintain strong control and balance of both school and athletics, to make sure I am performing strong, as well as maintaining good grades and education.
Locally I’ve contributed to food school drives, river cleanups, and community events focused on engaging inner-city youth in environmental conservation. On a national level I’ve worked with indigenous tribes in Alaska, Washington, and Utah to understand their natural resource challenges and champion for them through contact with my legislators. My community is far reaching and I have a great sense of responsibility to them.
