My name is Chloe Kim, and I’m the varsity captain of the girls’ golf team at the Northern Valley Regional High School at Old Tappan. My objective for my college experience is to play women’s golf at a competitive level while also maintaining a rigorous academic schedule. I strongly believe that I’ll be able to contribute to schools not only through sports but through education aspects as well.

What makes you different?
I'm willing to go through the most challenging paths to provide a brighter future for myself. Even if conditions are difficult (like balancing multiple APs during sports seasons), I can see the long-term benefits of persevering through it. Even if the results aren't immediate or what I desire at the time, I firmly believe most efforts eventually bring an advantage in the future, and no passion goes to waste. Not only do I play golf with this mindset, but I also apply such thinking to other aspects of my life.
Why do you want to compete in college?
While golf has taken up most of my time in high school, I've gained more than the experiences I've lost out on. Golf is a sport that allows total strangers to stick together for upwards of 5-6 hours, and it takes little effort to meet individuals from all across the state and even the country. The sport allows for connections and improvements in critical skills such as communication and has brought me closer to people in my own family. It's one of my top priorities, and it's a skill that I believe will stick with me for the rest of my life. By playing in college, not only will I be able to improve continuously, but I'll continue to be able to meet a variety of individuals and go through experiences I otherwise would not be able to.
In college, I look for a healthy mix of education, social life
and sports. While the college experience is something I greatly look forward to, my main goal is to carve a well-set path to guide me into adult life. I'd like to continue and improve my current passions in college life as well as find an environment that provides enough pressure to push developments in both my academics and sports.
