I am AJ Mendolia. I would describe myself as a hard-working, student-athlete who strives to fulfill my dreams, both academically and athletically. I realize that it becomes harder and harder at each level athletically, and eventually, at whatever level I stop competing, I will need to rely upon my education to move forward in life.
I pride myself on being respectful and helpful to others. I strive to be a great person inside and outside of the classroom as I believe if you do not respect and help others, you will not succeed. I am very devout in my faith and try to bring God into my life when and wherever I can. I enjoy being challenged. I understand that failure is simply part of life, and dealing with adversity can make you stronger.
I have set extremely high goals for myself as I wish to attend a highly ranked academic institution that also has a top level baseball program which I can participate. I am extremely interested in continuing my baseball career to the highest level, but realizing that baseball ends at some point for everyone, I intend on pursing a career in the medical field.
