Who am?.. Why do I do what I do?.. and why do I do it? essay (natasha weidemann section 1G)

Natasha Weidemann
Section: 1G


I am an athlete, I am a rower.

Some people question my sport, and don’t believe it is considered one.
However, anyone involved knows that it is mentally and physically more demanding than almost anything they have ever endured.

So why wake up at five A.M. everyday to row?

Why push your body to the point of breakdown and wake up the next morning just to do it all over again?

A piece on the water is done, I sit breathing heavily, wiping the sweat from my forehead, staring at the sunrise in the crisp morning air, feeling so good about myself for doing something I thought was impossible.

The feeling of accomplishment and self-confidence I gain after every practice gives me a mental toughness.

The urge to push myself without recognition or a prize involved is more valuable of any reward than I can ever receive, on paper or in words.

The friends I have met and the bonds I have built have changed my life forever. I know that I have a team that is always there for me, a second family.

Yes I have had to give up many things that other people do not have to, like partying with friends, eating dessert, and even joining certain social clubs, but

It has made me who I am…….

A strong, confident, hardworking, and team oriented person. It has taught me to resist temptations and work hard for what I want.

In strange way I have become a critical thinker,

Realized that life is short, and that every day has something to offer.

To enjoy every moment and make sure that what I’m doing every moment is something that I enjoy.

For me right now, that is pushing myself and being part of a team

I am an athlete, I am a rower.
