Polina Drugachenok
I believe that there is a right time and place for a competitive spirit, and that the key to being successful in competitive sports is learning how to control it. When I was captain of my volleyball team in high school, I witnessed talented, competitive players get discouraged at the first sign of defeat because of the all-or-nothing mentality, of which I am also guilty at times. Some may think that intense competitiveness is necessary to win, but I realised that it is also sometimes the very reason some teams loose. Although leading the team fostered my competitive spirit, it also taught me how to control it in order to be a good leader even in times of loss. I now preach that winning is not the only way to succeed, and that a match isn’t over until the game point and that your spirits should not fall until the last ball hits the floor. I believe in being a friendly and understanding teammate as opposed to just being a captain because in my experience, a team dynamic like that yields the best results. Having spent my first year at UCL with the Mixed Team #2, I have an idea of what the dynamic is like in mixed teams and I believe I would make a great captain to Mixed Team #1 next year. I am determined, good at communication and highly organised, which I believe qualifies me for the role.
