Suffolk County Rookie of the Year 2016
I have always played sports and been a part of a team since I was 5. I have been playing lacrosse since Kindergarten. I have been on a swim team or working as a lifeguard since I was 5 and have played volleyball since I was in 5th grade. Throughout all my school years I have played on a team - It's part of my life and I want to play on a team for as long as I can.
As a nominated member of Athletes Helping Athletes for the past 4 years, I have demonstrated the importance of being a good role model for younger student athletes. We promote the importance of being healthy. We discuss how we balance school work and sports and we encourage a positive self image. We also lead by example. We make pledges not to drink, smoke or do drugs, respect our teammates,our school and our community on and off the field.
I enjoy being healthy. I eat right, exercise and do not pollute my body with drugs or alcohol. I don't smoke or vape!
I am an New York State certified Ocean Lifeguard- employed by the Village of Saltaire, Fire Island, New York since 2017. I have made multiple rescues. I feel being a first responder to swimmers in distress is a valuable service and I am very proud of my accomplishments.
I have also participated in multiple charity events that have raised money for good causes.
