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

I've been a student-athlete most of my life so rowing in college while obtaining a quality education is a lifetime aspiration. For me, while I love rowing and playing sports, my academics have always come first and my parents have supported my passion for rowing by requiring me to maintain a strong grade point average. I've always been a physical and competitive kid so rowing brings me a lot of joy, in addition to the team camaraderie and exercise.

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

Last year, prior to my novice year in rowing, I was proud of being named the MVP of my high school basketball team. I hope I earned this honor not just by leading the team to a league title but because of my role in championing the accomplishments of my teammates. As a rower, I work hard to encourage my teammates to reach their individual and collective goals. My goals in serving in a leadership role are to be a positive role model to my teammates by emphasizing good grades, ensure good attendance at all trainings and competitions, provide focus at all team practices and show encouragement and support to every member of the team. Also, in my role as the Vice President of "Peer Leadership," a student-led support club for Notre Dame students coping with special needs, I serve as a public face of the effort to ensure that all students at our school are supported and offered the same learning, social, athletic and extracurricular opportunities as their fellow students.

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

As I've been involved in athletics for many years now, I've learned what I need to do to ensure that I'm able to give my best performances on the water. First, I prioritize my academics during my non-playing time so that I'm not thinking about school work when I'm training. To do this, I don't watch any tv during the week and do as much of my school work as possible on the weekends. Also, I make sure I get plenty of rest, drink lots of water and maintain a healthy diet so that I can avoid injury.

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

As someone born with a birth defect called a cleft lip/cleft palate, I can empathize with the complicated health, social and psychological needs of people facing challenges in life. Every year since I was born, I've had specialized surgeries requiring extensive hospitalization and rehabilitation so I know what it's like to be "different" than other kids. It is no surprise that my best friend in high school happens to have Down syndrome and I am an advocate for all children and adults with special needs. In order to better assist my friend's integration at our high school, I helped to launch and manage a special club designed to educate teachers, staff and students in how best to serve all students with special needs.
