I have dreamed of playing at the college level for over 3 years now. I love the competition, bonding among teammates and pushing myself to be the best athlete I can be.
Being a leader means not waiting until you’re told what to do. Instead, you show initiative and do what you know should be done. At a recent tournament, our coach was held up by the administrators so my teammates were confused about what to do. I looked up on my phone what court we were to play on, gathered my team there and initiated our warm up.
Being a leader off the field means being a role model for those around you. This means stepping up and showing initiative, confidence, and control. I regularly find myself guiding conversations away from negative or derogatory comments about other people when in group discussions. We should treat each other in a more positive and loving manner.
Maintaining a strong and healthy athletic performance is more than just a matter of training, practice, and "keeping in shape." Your body needs support in the form of proper nutrition, hydration, and rest in order to keep performing at peak levels. That is why I make sure I don't stay up late and not get enough sleep, eat well-balanced, nutritious meals and continue to hydrate my body throughout the day especially when I'm working out.
I am currently involved in my church's AWANA program that works with young children and our community's beautification project. I have also spent a week serving the homeless in the Tenderloin area of San Francisco. Community Service is important as it bring the community together in helping us learn that others do care about our neighbors no matter where they live. It also unites the community in knowing what is needed, how to fix it, and where to go when a fix is needed.
