I have been playing water polo since I was 8 years old. For nearly a decade water polo has been a daily piece of my life. The years of dedication I put in, really push me to want to continue this decade long journey through college.
I believe strongly in being a leader on and off the field, especially from being a team captain twice. I lead by example. In the pool, I do my best to not complain, limit talking, and give my 100% at every opportunity. I do this with the hopes that my teammates will follow this example. Out of the pool I spend time with all my teammates and work to be a good teammate and friend, I also organize group gatherings and stride to do well in my academics. All of this is to provide a good example for my teammates to follow.
I pursue a healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete by listening to myself, manage my responsibilities, and showing respect to my coaches and peers. I listen to my body and mind when going to practice, if I'm sick I will take the best precautions to get better and understand my limitations. If I'm having a bad day, I work through my athletics but change my mindset. I work on my responsibilities outside of school such as homework and college applications, so that when I go into practice I am as clearheaded and able to work as possible, leading to a healthy performance athletically. Lastly respecting my coaches and peers, I am able to create a more healthy athletic performance from not only myself, but my teammates.
I am involved heavily in my local youth ministry, I serve as a Red Cross Blood Donor Ambassador, and I volunteer often at Orthopaedic Children's Institute. I hold a special place in my heart to my youth ministry as I have gone to that group through tough times and gotten help, I hope to provide the children I volunteer with the same opportunity. I serve with the Red Cross, because I understand and believe in the importance of giving blood and how necessary it is. I volunteer at the children's institute because I am able to see children with a range of orthopaedic deficits get cured, it is very rewarding to be a part of such a organization.
