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

I want to be recruited because I am dedicated to this sport. I work hard, work on my skills, I try and improve my flaws, no one is perfect, but If you're dedicated to what you're doing you can overcome anything. I want to be recruited because I want to prove others wrong, those that doubted me and said that I didn't have what I takes, that's my fuel to being recruited.

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

I'm a leader during the game, on the bench, and in practice. In order to win you have to look at what's in front of you and take one game at a time, there's no point in looking back at the negative, only look back at the positives. When I'm in the game as a goalkeeper I'm super vocal, I tell where I want my defenders to drop in or press out so that I can get the clearest view of the ball without letting them have a clear path on goal. Outside of any practice or game, I become a leader in the classroom, when something is supposed to be done in a group effort I make sure everyone does their part, I make sure everyone is comfortable with each other, I make sure we work and not get distracted, the faster and more cooperatively we get it done, the more time we will have on our hands to do other things.

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

Athletes today must take advantage of every opportunity to perform at the ever-increasing levels of competition. I eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids, and train regularly own my own. I love the game of water polo. I give 110% effort in any and everything I love. I pursue this in the pool whether in practice or on the game field because this game is what I am dedicated to. It is imperative that I work hard and leave it all on the field every play of every game. "Healthy athletic performance" is more important in the classroom. Without good grades, I could do what I love. My grades are treated the same as water polo, the harder I work, the better they are.

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

I'm involved in giving back to my community in many ways, one of these ways is going to a daycare after my school day is over and looking after children until their parents don't pick them up, I also help them with their homework. I try my best to explain things so that they will understand the subject to the full potential. These efforts are important to me because it teaches me valuable lessons such as teamwork, communication, responsibility, and time management. Another reason these efforts are important to me is that these efforts give provide me with mental health benefits, it provides me happiness, lower stress levels, lower pressure, and it improves my social communications, because of the different students and people I'm talking to all throughout my time there. I think this is what makes me develop my critical leadership role.
