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

I have been incredibly lucky to find a sport like rowing. The great friendships and the team community that I have found at my club have been an incredible experience in my high school life. I am also lucky that I have found a sport that asks for my constant self-improvement. Thanks to rowing, I have for the first time in my life become fit, become strong, and become a more determined and hardworking person as a whole. Going into college, I selfishly don't want those experiences to end. I would love to continue to row, continue to be a part of a great team, and continue to dedicate myself to the great sport of rowing.

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

I am the president of the New Wave Club at Darien High School. The club's mission is to make Darien High School a much more welcoming place to new and transfer students. Before the creation of our club, transfer students would be given the same tour as the incoming freshmen. Since the creation of New Wave, new students have been given individualized tours on orientation day, along with a "get to know your breakfast." As the semester mark approaches, I often personally take the few transfer students that our high school gets halfway through the year. I come in early to school and show new students around on a regular basis, and throughout the year will make an effort to ensure that these new students find their new home at Darien High School.

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

I have spent a lot of time looking for a good balance between my academic life and my rowing career. My classes give me large workloads, and rowing practice takes up three hours of my day. However, I love rowing and I love being able to put my all into my boat. As a result, I make sure to work hard both at my academics and my rowing. I make an effort to go to sleep at a reasonable hour to ensure that I can give 100% for both school and rowing. In addition, I work hard toward avoiding injury. I am fortunate that my coaches at Maritime Rowing Club put a large emphasis on stretching and will often leave time at the end of practice to ensure that we all get a good stretch in, but I will often stretch when I get home from practice. In the end, I make sure that I put in every bit of effort I can to make sure that come race day, I can give every ounce of myself to making my boat go as fast as possible.

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

I am often a volunteer at Building One Community, a center for immigrant help in Stamford, Connecticut. I work as an English as a Second Language tutor and have helped prepare some residents for their citizenship exams. As I have been lucky enough to spend time living across the world and learning new languages, and have had the privilege of connecting with my Latino heritage, I find fulfillment in using my skills in Spanish to help the people who have decided to uproot and come to the United States learn English, and help with their efforts in becoming an American citizen. In addition, I am a member of Darien High School's chapter of Tri M, the music honors society, and a member of my school's honors choir. Especially around the holiday season, I spend a fair amount of time doing community caroling and doing musical service for the town.
