2014 Junior Development Nationals
|Years diving||USA Diving||AAU|
I want to be recruited to dive in college because I think it's an excellent way for me to continue my passion for diving at a competitive level. It's a great experience for me to learn new skills (not only diving related), while being supported for schooling. Diving is part of my life and I want to continue that life and experience the benefits of that life so that I will not have regrets later on, and I feel that diving in college will be extremely beneficial for me.
As an older athlete in my club, I partake to be a role model for all younger athletes and to demonstrate good technique and behavior at all times. I always take time to get to know new athletes as well as develop relationships with other athletes.
I coach diving in my spare time and always strive to teach kids new skills while also prioritizing fun and respect.
In my diving career, we are taught to train smart instead of training hard. To train hard is only effort without precision which can lead to injury. Training smart is using the effort in important ways to minimize the risk of injury or downtime.
I work as often as I can at events in the city that are looking for volunteers. I worked at the children's festival, I volunteer for diving/school competitions, I volunteer at school held events and help my school community emotionally and educationally.
