“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.” T. Roosevelt
From the beginning, my parents have influenced my life by instilling the importance of being humble, honest, and hard working. They encouraged me from a very early age to be active and enjoy the outdoors, which laid the foundation for me playing multiple sports along the way: soccer, baseball, basketball, and football. Playing multiple sports was where I wanted to be; however, it did not come without challenges. I have learned that I am adaptable, coachable, and patient which are characteristics that have helped me to be successful on and off the field.
With that being said, I am currently taking pre-advanced diploma courses in pursuit of graduating with an advanced diploma. With success on the field and in the classroom, my hopes by being recognized as a scholarly-athlete, colleges will acknowledge both as being assets to their program; furthermore, allowing me to achieve my dream of playing at the next level.
