Personal Highlights

I've been rowing competitively for three years, and during this time I've worked my way up from bow seat of the Novice A boat to five seat of the JV boat. Since September, I have dropped my 2K PR time by 11.4s (currently 7:49.0), a direct result of working hard through winter conditioning season.

Before rowing, I was on a co-ed youth rugby team, and we won the Oregon State Championship in 2014. And for the last three years I have been a youth leader in an organization called Soul River (www.soulriverinc.org), which pairs youth and veterans on arduous climate science research expeditions in places like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Bears Ears in Utah, and the Florida Everglades (and lots of places in between) to research climate change and the environment. I've been able to share that research and experience back in my school and community. I've also played the trombone for six years, and currently play in our school's Wind Ensemble.

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

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.

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

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).

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

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.

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

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.
