Personal Highlights

Volunteer annually with a special needs camp where I am the primary caregiver for a disabled person. I am also learning disabled (dyslexic).

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

College diving has always been my dream and I have/will work very hard to get there. I have always loved the excitement of competition and, beyond everything, I have always loved diving. It is something that I definitely want continue through college. There is nothing that I would love more than to have the opportunity to represent my university as a diver.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

On the pool deck, I often try to be a role model for the younger kids especial when they are struggling with new dives. I have even been jokingly called "Mom" by some teammates because I am usually the person to give a pep talk, have sunscreen, and of course, extra shammies. Outside of diving, I have been selected for many "leader" clubs by my teachers and classmates. In middle school, I was co-president of a kid run robotics club where another student and I held fundraising events where we were able to rise 3,000 dollars, (robots are expensive;)). From that we were able to buy a robotics kit and teach over 50 other students how to use them in our self created workshop. I was also a leader of a small fundraising club where we raised money to buy a service dog for a veteran through a student-run talent show. More recently, my sister and I started a local branch of a national organization and merged our club with a local high school's club. Through leadership roles on the pool deck and in school clubs, I feel I have gained a lot of very useful skills that enable me to thrive as leader in my community.

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

For me, I feel the best way to fulfill a healthy athletic performance is by seeing a sports psychologist. This is something that I have started doing in the last year as a tool to try and reach my full athletic potential. In addition, I attend practice 5-6 days a week, usually including a small-group private on the weekends. I also understand the importance of maintaining healthy relationship with diving and balancing my diving and school life.

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

Every summer I volunteer with Catholic Charities' "Camp I Am Special". It is a unique camp because it is one of the only camps in the country that offers a one on one experience for children and adults with specially needs. As a buddy at this camp, I am a camper's care taker/best friend 24 hours a day for one week. It is a truly moving experience to devote yourself to someone completely and to open your heart to someone who lives with their heart wide open to everyone they meet. As a person with dyslexia, I have always felt close to the special needs community. This camp is amazing experience for all involved.
