Ever since I was 9 years old I always dreamed of one day going to college and playing baseball. I have worked hard to become the best baseball player that I can become, I am determined to continue to work hard to reach my full potential on the diamond. Having said that I am now in 10th grade and I am also starting to realize how important it is for me to reach my full potential in the class room to achieve my dream to go to college as well as to give my self other opportunities beyond college.
I have been surrounded by great influences my entire life from my family, to great coaches, teachers, and church leaders. They all share many great characteristics that I desire to emulate myself. Some of those are hard work, integrity, determination, and kindness. As I said I hope to exhibit those same traits in my own life that I believe will allow me to reach my goals and to be a person of influence for good in the next few years and going forward.
