As a Junior, I will be participating in fewer organizations but investing more time in them. I will be a volunteer assistant coach for a high school I used to compete against. Their head coach was my summer coach for several years and many of his athletes were my club teammates. Being an assistant coach will allow me to give back my time to the people who helped develop me into a better person and athlete in hopes of doing the same for someone else.
In addition to this, I will be joining Megaphone again for my group service project. This year we will be creating and posting material for the Syracuse Police Accountability and Reform Coalition (SPARRC). I hope to use some skills I’ve gained from previous service projects to contribute meaningfully.
Outside of my service project, I will continue to be on the track team. This year I have taken on the role of captain and will be working closely with the coaches and other captains to guide our team through this unfamiliar time. If the current climate permits, I hope to become an All-American for the second year in a row.
