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

I am passionate about rowing. I love the competition, the companionship of the team and just being out on the water, rowing together as a team.

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

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

Eat and hydrate appropriately. Practice or exercise multiple times a day. Sleep.

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

It is strange that in this time, when the community has the most need, we need to stay distant from one another. Over the past year, in an effort to keep my family and the Oakland Strokes crew members as safe as possible, I have not been involved in additional community activities. Instead, my focus has been on maintaining a rigorous academic workload, and leading additional practices & socially distanced activities for crew members.
