Personal Statement

One thing I have learned while playing field hockey is to not define myself only by my stats because they do not tell the whole story. I define myself by what happens between plays and off the field and by holding my teammates and myself accountable for our success or failure. I am a positive influence on my team by my encouragement, motivation, and attitude. 

Throughout my years of playing, my school and club coaches have consistently told me that my poise, vision, and quiet confidence make me a leader on the team. Creating plays and putting the perfect passes to my teammates are some of the things I love most about playing. My coaches have also said that they appreciate my coachability. I am receptive to any advice my coaches can give me because I am passionate about improving my game. I often go to the field on my own to practice and, if the weather is bad, I spend hours in my basement where I have my own hockey goal. Also, I play year-round with my club team, Gateway.

This desire to constantly improve and work hard has contributed to my success both on the field and in the classroom. At school, I challenge myself by taking the accelerated math and science classes. I am looking for a university where I can continue to develop both athletically and academically.
