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

Athletics are a way of life, rowing is a lifestyle. Rowing isnot only my passion, but my life. My dream is to one day compete on the Men's US Olympic Rowing Team.
Rowing at a college level is a privilage and a goal. I cannot imagine my life without this sport.

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.

As a student athlete there are decisions you (the athlete) have to make which affect your rowing life. Eating healthy is one of the most important decisions the athlete will make. While training it is important to be physicaly and mentaly healthy. To ensure mental health one (the athlete) has to clear one's head of all outside stressors. To be a competitive athlete (especially a rower), drugs are not an option. All focus and energy goes on "what can I do to improve myself as a rower?"
Personally I take many steps to ensure my strong ability in rowing. For example; I eat healthy, I do not do drugs or drink, I focus on what is really important to me in life (family, rowing, school), and I listen to my coaches and follow instructions immidiatly. With this combination of steps, I have noticed a great improvement in myself as an athlete, and as a rower.

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

I am a strong beliver in a healthy community. Therefore during each month I participate in several volunteer oppertunities. At the Darien YMCA my family runs the special olympic program called Young Athletes. Each volunteer is paired with one athlete who has special needs, and we work on athletic and personal goals. In the earlier younger group we focus on communication, throwing and catching, and the basics of playing a sport. In the later older group we focus more on how to play a certain game, how to get along with others, and how to advocate for yourself and others. I have been volunterring for 6 years, every sunday.
Volunteering for Young Athletes is an important part of my life because, I am helping teach and helping the athlete grow.
