I am considering becoming a politician or a member of the CIA, FBI or other law enforcement. That or I am going to become an engineer, though I love engineering too much to decide on one particular major.

Personal Highlights

I apologize in advance for the lack of times for my events. My state Governor has declared that pools and other 'non essential' businesses are to close and practices suspended until further notice. I also wish to make aware the fact that I have never swam in a official meet. I will need help in technique and my swimming fitness. I have loved to swim since the time I was a toddler. And I have always wanted to swim competitively (my co-workers at the pool were annoyed at the fact that I was always challenging them to races). But unfortunately a lack of opportunity has limited my ability to swim competitively. My favorite stroke is the butterfly though my endurance for that stroke is wanting. I love to exercise and train I don't mind any kind of training, though there are some forms of exercise that I am not particularly good at, (HIIT for example). But I am willing to push myself to become the best that I can.

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

I want to prove to myself and the world that I can work harder than anyone else. I want to prove to myself that when I set a goal, I can work hard enough to reach it. In short, I want to win, and I want to win in such a way that I can feel good about myself afterwards.

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

I am not a natural born leader. I have used to be the supporter of the leader, I never wanted the position of leader, but I would actively support the leader that my peers and I choose. However I was often disappointed by the fact that often times the leaders we chose let us down time and time again. And so I resolved to become the best leader I can. So while I might not have had an official position on a team, I have always taken charge. I don't say this to boast, I still think that my communication skills need work, but I am confident in my leadership skills.

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

I think that a healthy athletic performance as a student athlete is to push my abilities, strengths and knowledge to a uncomfortable point in practice, using the progressive overload technique. And when performing in a competition always pushing hard, but not to such a point that you are going to destroy yourself needlessly.

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

I am very involved in my community in terms of service mostly due to my mother, and somewhat my religion. My mom has me and my five siblings delivery food to our neighbors, clean up yards, go to echo food bank and help them out, go to a bishop's store house and restock their food items, help members of my church and community with their farms and ranches. Though we are very often doing smaller services like food delivery and such.
