Rowing has changed my life. I started rowing in seventh grade as an insecure, socially awkward, completely un-athletic kid who had never really committed to a sport. Rowing changed all that. I met my best friends, learned how to lead and communicate effectively, and discovered newfound confidence through building fitness and rowing technique. Getting faster in a boat helped my self-esteem more than I could have imagined.
I truly love rowing with my entire heart. This sport has helped me grow into the person I am today, the team environment pushes me to be a better person, and the fitness required has helped me become more confident. Rowing in college would allow me to really push myself to be the best person that I can be, and I know that I thrive in a competitive team environment.
I really try to look for balance. Typically I train five days a week, and then take the other two days as lighter days or rest days (i.e. I’ll go to yoga or go on a light run). I get as much sleep as I can, making sure I never get fewer than six hours on any given night. Additionally, I eat a high-protein diet and am partially plant-based.
When it comes to school, my studies always come first. I manage my time well, get ahead on work when I can, and make sure I get all the assistance I need from teachers, especially in my AP classes. Overall, I am productive with my time, make sure to rest, fuel my body appropriately, and give every practice that I attend my 100% effort.
