I believe one has to be committed to a sport that provides team comradery, but helps me set goals in both my academic and social life. I love to be part of something that is bigger than myself and I find sports as a vessel to encompass that need. I thrive off of healthy competition and use sports to push me to do better things in my overall life experiences.
Leadership means to me the ability to encourage, support, and empower my teammates to want to be better players. I do this by cheering them on and recognizing their personal accomplishments both on and off the field. That same perspective can be used elsewhere. I belong to several 4H clubs and I am club President of my rabbit project club. I use my knowledge and skills to help younger members with thier showmanship skills and provide positive feedback to help encourage them to improve thier abilities. No matter where I am I can find someone who may need a little of encouragement in thier lives. I plan on being that person.
Physically I try to train throughout the year. I play volleyball in the fall, club volleyball in the winter, weight train throughout, track in the spring, and consistently try to keep my body moving through weight training and my part time job at a local gas station. I refrain from eating empty calories and support my body with nutritious food. Mentality, I try to refrain from negative energy from my surroundings. I clear my head and don't get involved with useless drama that maybe directed at me. I challenge my cognitive thinking by being secure with who I am and how I want to present myself. If I can be secure with who I am, I can be confident in my performance.
I use platforms such as 4H and the National Honor Society to accomplish much of my community service activities. I donate my time to cleaning up garbage along the highway, volunteer at the county fair, and wrapping donated Christmas presents for less fortunate families in our county. Helping people and the local area allows me to be proud of my community and feel that I contributed a small piece of myself to my local family. I live in a small community and in a way we are all family regardless if we are related or not. I want to leave a mark that says I had a positive impact to those that know me. I think if we all helped just a little bit there would be alot less negativity in this world.
