If you could only do one of the activities you have listed in the Activities section of your Common Application, which one would you keep doing? Why? (Required for all applicants. Approximately 100 words)

It’s hard to choose from my many passions, but I would pick ice hockey. Not only does hockey provide me with great exercise and fun, but the leadership and responsibility that comes with playing on or captaining a hockey team are important skills throughout other parts of my life. Bigger things like motivating the team through words or leading by example are important, but I’ve come to understand the importance of the little things like fulfilling one’s role in the attack or defense-- these are just as necessary for success as a team. It’s great to have a passion that translates into and enhances so many other facets of my life.
