- Past three summer have worked on a cherry farm in Michigan, hours were 6am to 6pm six days a week for three weeks
- Involved in multiple clubs including DECA (business club), VIP Club (teaches middle schoolers about problems they will encounter in high school), Rice Sports and Games (go to Chicago and play games with orphans), and Citadel (go to retirement home and spend time with residents)
I want to be recruited to play college sports because I love being part of a team environment. As a team we win together. and also lose together in the end we are all working towards our goal by reaching our maximum potential. Crew is one of the few sports where I can proudly say that there is no I team as a team we bond over our highs and lows and I believe that we all come out better in the end.
A way I show leadership on the crew team is basically in my job position. As a coxswain it is my responsibility to keep the members of my crew safe, provide information for my rowers, be another set of eyes for my coach, and to make sure everything is organized so that practice runs smoothly.
Off the water I have demonstrated leadership in the classroom as I have grown a coxswain mentality from doing the sport for three years. Whenever we are assigned projects or given a task its part of my personality to put in input so that the group is able to succeed with whatever task is at hand.
I pursue healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete by making sure that I take care of both the student and the athlete. This past fall season was a huge leap in the right direction for me both on the water and in the classroom. On the water I was able to work my way from being one of the lower end coxswains of the team to coxing the Varsity 8. The student part of me was able to match that performance by achieving a 4.2 GPA which is a step in the right direction for me academically.
I am involved in community service by having participated in multiple clubs through my school. I am part of Citadel which is a club that goes to an old folks home and spends time with them once a week. I am also involved in VIP club which is a club that teaches middle schoolers about possible high school dangers that they may encounter. Finally, I am involved in Rice Sports and games which is a club that goes to Chicago to play games with kids that have lost their families. All these efforts are important to me as its a way to get involved and give back to the community which I grew up in. These clubs also give me perspective on people who are less fortunate than me making me want to do better in all aspects of life because I was given a head start in life.
