Berkeley High IB Program,
Boys Scout Patrol Leader - Troop 6,
Cal Berkeley Summer Blue Camp Counselor in Training
I joined Berkeley High Crew at the beginning of my freshman year. Since then I've really enjoyed the experiences it has brought me, no matter how difficult or grueling the work may be. What really interested me in rowing was the unity and connection you find struggling together, something I find compelling in the boat and which also informs my interest in politics and building worldviews in my academic life.
Crew is about teamwork and rowing as one. One could say any sport is about teamwork and that communication between players is important, but nothing will ever beat crew in that regard. Crew helps me start or end any day on a high note because no matter what the workout was, I'll always walk away happy I did it and happy I joined. I am looking forward to continuing the journey at the collegiate level!
I would say I have plenty of leadership experience despite my age. I worked for a summer at Cal Berkeley camp for three months as a Counselor in Training leading and supporting youth daily activities, around 15-25 young campers at a time. .
Currently, I am in a Boy Scout Troop 6, poised to achieve Eagle by my 18th Birthday. I am leading and organizing a patrol of 6-8 scouts in zoom meetings/games and in-person meetings.
I stroked a Freshman 8, stroked a Freshman B-Quad and Bowed a Varsity A-Quad. I was voted 'Most Inspirational Rower' on my team amongst both Freshmen and Varsity men.
It's important to be disciplined. If you push yourself, pay attention in your academic classes and have a mentality like that, I truly believe that will translate to your athletic performance. It's important to keep working and not to stop until it is finished. This regiment can be applied to any sport and any daily life pursuits.
My intend is to study law or government related major in college so I can make an impact to my community as well as the state and global levels. It's a central part of my values and beliefs to be dedicated and interested in improving my community. Wether this be simply helping out other people daily, community service, or civil service, everyone should be obligated if not required to participate. I am extremely interested in pursuing work in the state, mayoral duties, policy work, anything government and bureaucracy has interested me and I think this would be an important way to support my community.
