Personal Statement

Above all else, my goal is to acquire the necessary knowledge from a quality education. I have an interest in Engineering and possibly the field of medicine. I enjoy the competitive nature of water polo, the strategy,  and the team camaraderie. While there will always be "someone better," you can always learn from them to improve yourself.  I played JV my Freshman year because I didn't know the game well. I had been swimmer for years. I was immediately hooked. I worked hard in club to improve and my Sophomore year I was a starter on the Varsity squad. I was the third leading scorer my first year on varsity. My junior year, my coach moved me to 2M defense. The position needed to be filled as an outgoing senior had played the position, and he felt I had the ability to do so.  I learned even more about all positions and their importance, by playing a different one. As a co-captain my junior year playing a new position, and continued off season club involvement, I became  a better leader in practice, in games,  as well as out of the pool. I believe I am a good candidate for any team, because I am always willing to learn more, and do more. I pride myself on being coachable, and know that someone always knows more than I do. I don't know exactly how different I am from other people I don't know, but I do have many peripheral interests that do not involve polo. I  believe doing dissimilar activities outside of your sport makes you a better athlete.  You gain a different  perspective when you do different things. You can learn more about others when you are a "multi-dimensional student/athlete." I believe that this correlates with better success in sports and life.
