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

After transitioning from volleyball to rowing, I absolutely fell in love with the sport of rowing. I love the structure, the commitment, the hard work and the culture of the team. Most importantly, I love the competitiveness of the sport and always working hard to achieve the next level. I think rowing in college would continue to offer the competitive nature of the sport, pushing me to the next level all the while being a part of a team and making new friends along the way.

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

I was the captain of my volleyball team before I began rowing in high school. The coach gave me all of the responsibilities of holding all of my teammates accountable for practice and matches. I would organize setting up the court/nets for practice/games, make sure everyone was on time and prepared for practice/games, and led everyone in warm-ups, cool downs, and equipment storage everyday of the season. I led by example and worked as hard as I could and I always treated everyone with respect and kindness. I believe that leading by example with a hard work ethic, good character and kindness gains the respect of your teammates and the coaches.

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

I believe a "healthy athletic performance" is important as a student-athlete. There are a few things that need to be balanced to be successful as a student athlete. A well-balanced diet, good sleep, strong academics, and a constant commitment to one's sport. I think one of my strengths is organizing my day/week so I can maintain a healthy balance between all of those things. My academics always come first and then I make sure that I eat a good diet throughout the day to prepare for my workouts either at practice or on my own. Lastly, I always make sure that I get a good night sleep because I feel that directly affects my performance as a student and an athlete.

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

Growing up going to Catholic school my whole life, community service has always been a part of my life. From coaching little children, volunteering in a special ed classroom, helping organize Christmas food drives for the poor, and recently volunteering to help the elderly grocery shop during the COVID pandemic, community service is something I have enjoyed doing with my family and on my own since I was a young girl. Giving back to the community has always been an important part of my family's life ever since my dad was diagnosed with brain cancer. We received a lot of support from our community when my dad was going through treatment, so in return, we have always tried to give back with our time and efforts to show gratitude.
