Rowing to me is more than just a sport, it has become second nature. I take it very seriously ensuring I achieve to the best of my abilities in all that I do within the sport. My friends at rowing have become my family and my role as Captain of Boats has placed me in a position of leadership where I make sure that each member of the club is content with the position they are in, both physically and emotionally. As much as I love South Africa I wish to develop my understanding of the broader world I live in, by traveling, as well as I believe that the United States is the best option for me to further myself not just as a student-athlete, but also as a caring and hard-working individual.
I am a dedicated Christian and I have achieved highly in all aspects of my life. I am a functioning member of every crew I row in and I strive to galvanize the technique of each boat. Furthermore, due to the level of rowing that I compete at, I have taught myself to balance my academics with my sport at a level where I can still achieve high marks that are pleasing to me and those who assess my learning abilities. I also achieve highly in my cultural activities, specifically visual arts where I have successfully achieved distinctions consistently throughout my high school career and have had my art on exhibitions many times. Outside of rowing, I also fulfill a range of other leadership roles at my school which include being a member of the Rotary International Interact Club, a member of the Art Club, a member of the student discipline committee, and serving as a Chapel steward and leading student worship at my school which is Christian faith-based school.
I am completely open to study at any location within the US and my key goal is developing myself into a better athlete, artist, student as well as setting myself up for the best future possible.
I look forward to this next chapter of my academic and athletic journey.
