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

I am passionate about rowing and challenging myself and my friends to achieve our personal goals.

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

On the boat, I have guided a young team in the lightweight 8 composed of mainly sophomores. With them I managed to reach the B final in the 2019 US Youth Nationals. Away from rowing, I play first trumpet in my high school, and I am currently volunteering at the Mamaroneck Emergency Medical Services (ambulance service)

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

I am disciplined, take good care of myself, my hygiene, and my friendships. I apply the same disciplined approach to my school work as I do in rowing.

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

I volunteer as an attendant at the Mamaroneck Emergency Medical Services, and serve as a life guard in the local swimming pool.
