Personal Statement

I became interested in diving at an early age.  As an 8 year old I was exstatic to go to diving lessons and learn new things.  I was content taking lessons for a few years until I turned 12.  When I was 12 I joined a summer team that competed. My first meet was my most influential.  I was scared to get on the board and dive in front of everyone.  They called my name and my dive and I got on the board scared and ready to give up diving completely.  I threw my dive anyway and came up with a huge smile on my face and from there I was hooked.  I got decent scores and was ready to get on the board for my next dive. This wasn't the meet I got the highest score or placed the highest but it was the meet that influenced me the most. That season I won the most improved diver award and gained the confidence to try out for the varsity team at school.  At age 12 I tried out and made the varsity dive team. I've come a long way from my first meet and I intend to keep improving. 

Throughout my varsity seasons I trained at Shenendehowa High School with their varsity coach since my high school isn't equipped for diving.  While at meets I had to remember the tips my coach told me at practice and apply them to dives which I had to preform in the meets. Starting the 2017 varsity season I am switching schools to Shenendehowa and diving at meets with a coach which I am positive will improve my scores and confidence. I am grateful that the coach who has trained me will be able to coach me at meets so I will have a better chance at success.  I am eager to finish the two years I have left of high school strong and join a good college team to continue diving and bettering myself. Being part of a team is something I crave and I am an excellent team player especially helping the newer divers,  cheering and supporting the entire team. I would be very happy to join a college team and meet new people and continue training, competing and learning.
