Personal Statement

I am seeking a school where I can be challenged both athletically and academically.  I would like to attend a school where athletics are valued, and where I can feel part of a community.  I would be a good candidate for a college field hockey team because I am extremely competitive and play with grit, never giving up.   I am a hard worker and am encouraging to my teammates and others, both on and off the field.   I manage my time effectively and have strong grades, despite tough classes and a demanding after-school schedule.  In addition to playing field hockey year-round, I ran track for the past few years, holding state and conference records at both the 200m and 400m distances.   This Spring (2021), I am going to give soccer a try and play for my high school.  I was also a competitive Irish dancer for 8 years, competing at the international level from 2013-17.  I would be a great addition to your team and I hope you'll give me a look!
