Personal Highlights

I have played multiple sports including:
Taekwondo (3 years).
Competitive Gymnastics (7 years).
High School Competitive Varsity Cheer (1 year).
Crew (current going into my second year).

I also coached cheer for the past two years and loved it!

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

I want to be recruited to row in college because I love to challenge myself, not only academically, but also physically. Rowing has quickly become an outlet or safe haven for me. Whenever I am not feeling the best I know that as soon as I sit in the boat or on the erg, with the friends that I have gained from this sport. I know that whatever negative thing is happening at the moment, it is only temporary. If I get recruited, it would enable me to continue to do what I love.

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

On the field:
One way I demonstrate leadership on my crew team is by motivating the rest of my team. For example, when we run hills and trails during practice our coach has us stay together, however not everyone is the best runner on my team, so I try to find ways to help motivate them to continue running and if I notice that someone is struggling I run with them and try to talk them through it. I am a very competitive person by nature, so another way that I found that typically motivates my teammates is by making the run a game/ competition. I give them a head start and then i’ll run and up to them and try to catch them and vise versa. I found that doing these games makes them feel better about themselves and it also builds a team bond and friendship that otherwise may not have been there.

Off the Field
For the past two years I have been coaching cheer. The very first year I coached I did it as volunteer work and I ended up loving it. It was amazing to see the transformation in the girls' confidence levels from the beginning of the season to the end and to realize that you have that much influence on a person just by being there and having a positive attitude and thus creating a posting environment, was amazing. There was one girl that i worked with who was very shy. At the beginning of the season she would only talk to her mom and by the end of the season she was one of the loudest cheerleaders on the field! That was crazy and pretty life-changing to me because I knew that I did that. It was one of my most rewarding moments.

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

As a student-athlete in IB and honor classes, I have to find ways to balance my schedule to maintain “healthy athletic performance”. For example, on the days that I have homework, clubs, and practice, I make sure to start my homework whenever I have free time in class or throughout the day and then finish it right when I get home from practice. Also, if I have a lot of homework and I do not have practice that day (typically the weekends) in order to maintain fitness and get my work done, I split up my homework and training so that I have breaks. This actually helps me focus on what I am doing at the moment and I tend to get more work done. As a student-athlete, I personally think there is more to maintaining a “healthy athletic performance” than training. To me, it also about being able to find time to meet new people and hang out with friends every once in a while. I would say that I am a pretty friendly person and I like to be able to connect with people and learn about them. I believe that having friendships outside of rowing is important and helps me maintain a healthy mental stability, which increases my ability to further my athletic and academic performance.

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

Like I said above I coach cheer, which has allowed to positively motivate and influence the next generation of young children.

Another thing that I do for my community actually takes place in my school. I am the secretary of Green Club at Gar-Field Senior High School. In Green Club we work to help beautify our school by planting gardens, implementing energy-saving tactics in our school, and help educate the public on different ways that they can easily decrease their negative impact on the environment. Green Club is important to me because I recognize the impact that humans are having on the Earth and even though I am just one person, it only takes one person to start something for more to follow. I love the Earth and want to help preserve it for as long as possible.
