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

My commitment and passion for diving would be the obvious answer, but there are many more. I am only diving for two and a half years and I thoroughly enjoy my time at practice. The friends and relationships I built will be lifelong. Spending time with serious athletes seems to fit my personality. I am not interested in the party scene, so it is easy to connect with other divers that have similar goals than me. Being a diver in college will help me reach my highest expectations as an athlete. Throughout my athletic life, my coaches have had the biggest impacts on me. They believed in me and really helped in developing a healthy self-esteem while pushing my limits. I am really looking forward to being recruited and proving my integrity and commitment to my sport.

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

There are numerous ways in which I exemplify my leadership. Now that I am a junior in high school, the younger divers look up to me because I have had lots of experience in leading others. In school, I have been both the president of my grade and of the National Honor Society in my school. In my diving community, I set forth a good example to others by keeping my expectations high and creating goals to strive toward. I remain supportive of my teammates when their diving is going well and help motivate them when they are frustrated and struggling. My experiences in school and my diving community have helped me demonstrate my full leadership potential to my peers.

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

Time management has been just as important as learning leadership skills. I have learned that procrastination is definitely not worth it. I was taught that if I look at everything as an investment, it will help me balance my life. Procrastinating effects my mood and causes unnecessary stress by making me think about what I need to get done. When I dive, I am not always at my best due to work that I have waited until the last minute to do. My practices are drastically better when this is not the case. Overall, I prefer to have the benefits of proper time management than to stress about work that I've procrastinated over so that my athletic performance is as fantastic as it can be.

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

I feel it is very important to give back to my community. Every year, I have the opportunity to participate in a school activity that does just this. There are four schools in my district, three of which are elementary schools. The children in these three schools must move on into the same middle school when they hit seventh grade, but I am able to help them get to know each other before they join in the same classes. I assist these students in a sleep-away camp for multiple days, utilizing my leadership skills to help them get to know each other and me. I like the idea that I am helping young students grow up and continue with their lives knowing that they are not alone, and that they can be leaders, too.
