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

I want to play sports in college because field hockey is where I can go. I can not imagine not having a place to go where I can relieve stress that school puts on me. It makes me a better student just as well as athlete. Field hockey is a place where I can compete and and where I can put my energy into. Field hockey is a challenge for me physically and mentally where I can test my limits and see what I can really do.

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

I have created a field hockey program were I coach children who want to improve there skills in a non-stressful environment where they do not have to fear that their shortcomings will mean anything therefore giving them an open environment to learn and improve at their own pace. I feel that this shows leadership on the field because I am helping them be better and stronger athletes both mentally and physically and guiding them in the right direction to accomplish these goals. Off the field this shows the leadership in actually starting up the program, reaching out to figure out what had to be done, obtaining insurance, and networking. Creating this program had many of roadblocks that I overcame proudly.

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

As a student athlete I continue to work hard to maintain and improve my athletic ability. I work on my fitness level at a local gym, 518athlete, with trainer, Aidan Howley, who helps me and his other athletes to obtain the highest fitness level possible, both mentally and physically. Giving us an outlet and area were we can both improve and let things go. In addition to this I play on my club field hockey team, ADK were we have practice year round and even a tournament coming up. I also do plenty of running, specifically as a stress-relieving outlet. Lastly I play lacrosse in the spring to diversify my surroundings and liven my athletic ability. While doing this continue to study and maintain my grades.

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

I spend a lot of time volunteering for various efforts that do present themselves. I volunteer for school events and fairs. I have also become a tutor, I tutor kids in elementary schools who have fallen behind and also my fellow athletes who struggle to stay on pace given the rigor of our sport and the time it takes in our lives to be the best possible athlete we can be. This is important to me because not only is volunteering fun and a great way to explore ideas and meet new people it also is a great feeling knowing you've helped someone and I live for that.
