I would like to be recruited to row in college because, throughout my academic years and the last few years in general, rowing has been the best thing to have happened to me. I've learned what it means to push yourself, to hold yourself accountable to a goal, to be mentally tough, and teamwork. All of which, has reflected into my academics and has kept me accountable to my goals in school.
Rowing has always been my escape. The boathouse is my happy place and, the two hours of being on the water, in the middle of a lake, you cant stop or get up and leave, has been what has kept me sane for the past three years. It still is the only thing that keeps me up and going.
Also, the people I've met and the environment is the best part about the sport. Being around a like-minded group of rowers who all have the same goals as you, to succeed and to succeed as a group, creates this spark of motivation and competition which feeds strength, power, friendship, and speedy fast boats.
I pursue healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete by prioritizing my sleep, learning to manage my time well, talking to someone when I'm having issues, and eating to fuel performance. I know myself and there is no chance that I will be able to perform well as a student and an athlete if, I don't get at least seven hours of sleep a night. This has lead me to be more time efficient and make quick decisions about the importance of certain assignments and activities and work them into my schedule effectively. A problem lots of student-athletes have is, not speaking up if they're having a problem in school, with their school schedule, issues on the team, or issues they are dealing with themselves. Over this past year especially, I've learned to speak up and not feel guilty or vulnerable about it. We have lots of stress and a packed schedule so stress and issues are going to pop up. Also, I take care of my body and what I put in it. I only have it for so long and I need the proper nutrition to fuel my goals.
