I am very social and love getting to know new people. Getting involved in my community, school, and team is one of my favorite things and I like to keep busy. I train five to six days a week. I love diving tower especially, but I only get to dive it in the summer. I excel at school and enjoy pretty much every aspect of it. I love all subjects and am looking forward to see what that will lead me to do in the future. I also really enjoy traveling with my family and friends and am an avid writer. I write for my school newspaper, and it has shown me that passion can change the world.
I want to be recruited to play sports in college because I believe that playing a sport has taught me so many important lessons in life. I have learned time management, confidence, trust, how to make lasting friendships, perseverance, and so much more. I don't want those lessons to end after high school. Diving is something that makes me truly happy. I may not love it at all times, but it will always be something that I can turn to when nothing else in my life is going the right way. I am very passionate about the sport of diving, and I truly believe that it will compliment my academics in college and keep me on the path of life that I have in mind. Being an athlete is who I am, and I could not be more happy about it.
I am part of the National Honor Society at my school which leads me to volunteering in events at my school, community, and church. I believe that is very important to show your service to others to humble yourself and help lift the community up as a whole. I am also part of a club called Students in Action where I help lead a part of it called CATS or Creating Actions Through Service. Through this program, we help lead service projects in Kindergarten through eighth grade classrooms. We try and incorporate project and service based learning. I love doing this because I think it is so important to get involved in service at a young age. It is so amazing watching kids eyes brighten as they realize how they are helping the community, state, or even the world. It reminds them that even the smallest things we do can change the world.
