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

I want to be recruited to play sports in college because I want to shoot for the stars. When I was younger (6th grade-9th grade) I never pinned myself to be the smartest kid and my grades truly showed it. I was a student who wasn't challenged to succeed in life and didn't find my path until I went to high school. The drive to push myself academically and athletically arose when I joined my local crew team, which is where I found my moral compass. I see it as a personal vendetta to leave my unmotivated, young self behind and truly shine into the brightest I can be.

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, it is practically my job to lead a group of people towards a certain goal. Whenever a regatta comes around and we have to load the trailer, I take it personally upon myself to lead the crew in the right direction on de-rigging boats and loading them on the correct slots on the trailer as fast as possible. Whether it be the difficult people on my team or the not-so-difficult, I try my best to lead effectively and efficiently so we can leave the boathouse on time and be at the venue without any problems. This confidence in my leadership also applies to rowing sessions and races. This is necessary because trusting your coxswain in the boat is key to the success of your crew as a whole.

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

Since coxing a boat isn't necessarily something you need to physically train for, I use the time I'm not training on the water to help correct my fellow teammates on the erg with technique and form. I also take the time I have at practice to train my brain mentally by watching rowing videos for technical feedback and coxswain audio recordings to scout for better calls. All of these things help me widen my spectrum on how I can mold myself and help to further develop the boat I'm coxing. With all of this mental training, I try to get some physical training in every now and then, but I get frequent migraines which has hindered me in that area. To summarize, I take my job as a coxswain very seriously and absorb rowing knowledge the best I can to ensure my rowers are technically conditioned for the season.

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

Personally, I love to always take part in community events whenever the opportunity arises. I am currently apart of the National Junior Honor's Society at my school and was apart of the Business and Finance Academy at my school for two years. Both organizations frequently take part in community service events, and with NHS it is mandatory to get 2-3 hours of volunteer service monthly. Other community service efforts I participated in are Habitats for Humanity for those in need of housing opportunities, Basket Brigade to help feed the needy for Thanksgiving, and several different types of fundraisers for my high school crew team.
