Personal Statement

I will be a 2020 Graduate at South High School in Denver.   In Fall of 2017, I transferred schools to attend South HS due to my interest in attending school where I already played sports and my personal desire to build stronger student and athlete relationships with my baseball teammates. I was also seeking a more diverse school environment, because it reflects the world I live in.  The Sophomore mid-year school change was difficult, but absolutely worth the rewards gained for me personally, academically and socially.  

I am active in my school and community in various volunteer positions. I work part-time for a community golf program (First Tee of Denver) during the year, and volunteer to help elders of my surrounding community by helping to complete everyday tasks such as raking leaves and shoveling snow when they are unable to do so. I currently have a 3.6 Core GPA through my core classes I take.  They are all AP and Honors classes.  I have a 3.4 unweighted GPA, due to the fact that my first charter HS did not weight the advanced classes I was taking. I expect my GPA to continue to improve

On the baseball field, I desire to be the same leader that I am off the field. A personal aspiration of mine is to be a person that many people have deep respect for and use that as motivation to carry me to greater things in life.  I carry those values to the baseball field and to my teams.  Since I was a little kid, playing baseball has been a deep part of my personal character development. My athletic aspiration is to play college baseball and beyond. I am motivated to attend college and earn the grades and opportunities to be the person I dream to be in the future. With these aspirations, I can translate my genuine character into being a successful baseball player at the college level and being a selfless person who has many opportunities to do great things in life. I try to bring the best out in myself, and I hope, in turn, it brings out the best in everybody around me.
