I want to row in college because I love the sport so much. What I most love about the sport of rowing is the fact that it groups large groups of different people with different backgrounds and skills and makes them work together towards a common goal. No one person can carry the weight of the boat, it has to be everyone. My current teams motto is “Move as One” and it has really stuck with me these past couple of years. I row on a club team in downtown Cleveland with kids from all over the area, multiple different schools, and from many different socioeconomic backgrounds. Despite all of these differences we have learned together to move as one boat and one team. This has made me come to love the sport of rowing, the rush at the end of a race or a tough practice when you realize you did it! and you did it together. I want this experience as I continue into a higher education, I want a community that works together towards a common goal and truly cares for each other.
I am a member of one of my community’s churches. In the past I have been a part of the volunteer youth choir and have sung at church services. Recently, I have become a member of the Engagement Committee. My main role on this committee is to provide youthful insight on different ways to appeal to the younger generations and make our church more accessible to them. As a whole the committee works to get the congregation more engaged and participating in the church. This in turn generates revenue for the church to donate to local charities and aid funds such as the Cleveland Food Bank and reading camp to help kids keep reading over the summer! Overall, this committee is a way for me to help my community while also helping run something, a thing I like to do.
