Rowing has been a big part of my life for the past 2 and a half years, and it's made me a better person. It keeps me busy and in shape, as well as focused on the important things in life. I believe that rowing in college will keep me on this track and will keep me in the right mindset to get good grades. I know that college will free up my time, and rowing will for sure keep me focused on school.
On the water I think it's important to listen to the coxswain and become a part of the team, instead of trying to stand out. On the water I keep quiet when I need to, and am always improving myself. Off the water, I am always helping other people and telling the other rowers what needs to get done. I am one of the more experienced athletes, and know what has to be done, so I always am telling others what they need to do to help, as well as provide help for the team myself.
Recently I have started a food log, and I am always keeping track of what I eat to make sure I am healthy. I need to make sure that I am eating enough to keep up with my workouts, but I stay away from sweets as much as possible. I work out every day of the week except for Sundays, and I make sure to get enough sleep every night. I am a strong believer in healthy body healthy mind, and I know that it's important for me to stay well rested, fed, and strong.
I am involved in 3 volunteer service clubs and am running a bone marrow drive with a team of my friends. I feel strongly about working towards the cure for cancer, and one of these clubs help fund children with childhood cancer, and the bone marrow drive supports those with Leukemia. I volunteer once a month at the Coventry food pantry, and every summer help collect cans at my swim club. I think it's very important to give back to the community, especially since I am very fortunate in how I grew up.
