I want to be recruited to play sports in college because sports truly motivate me to do better, whether it be in the classroom or on the water. Rowing has given me so many opportunities to grow as a person, student, and an athlete. I would never want to have to cease that growth by stopping after high school. I would love to continue rowing in college and be recruited because I will grow even more as a person and be motivated in academics as I begin my college career.
Off the water I am a service learning ambassador for my high school and have attended sessions on how to improve the way my high school encourages volunteering and service learning. As a rower I often work with new recruits to introduce them to our club and have helped with Learn to Row sessions, serving as an example and a mentor for those interested in trying the sport.
I pursue “healthy athletic performance” as a student athlete by always being mindful of my fitness and wellness while also being aware of my studies. I make sure that beneficial nutrition is part of my daily routine and continue to find ways to better myself in practice and in school by focusing on details that will improve me as an athlete and student. I am continuously finding myself thinking of ways to discover healthier alternatives and better ways to train as to help my body rather than hurt it. I am also always striving to better myself in school and maintain academic success.
I volunteer at the Greensboro Science Center as a Zoo Docent and have been volunteering for 2 years. These efforts are important to me because through volunteering I am able to interact and educate the public while improving on my public speaking and interpersonal skills. I also love interacting with kids and the animals at the Greensboro Science Center, which makes me want to continue serving my community as a Zoo Docent.
