I am a fast learner when it comes to sports and academics. I have always been a strong learner in school and always maintain a 3.5 or higher GPA. What makes me different from other athletes is the fact that I always put in the effort and I am able to identify and learn from my mistakes.
I have always loved running track when I was younger and I participated in the national junior Olympics in 2017. My relay placed 6th in the nation and I placed 20th in the 200 meter hurdles. Then in April 2019 I tore my left hamstring while running a relay. It took me a month to recover and run in the regional qualifiers race. I was ranked 5th in the state for the 300 hurdles but I ended up placing 8th and didn't make it to state. I learned from that experience that not everything in your career will go your way and you will have to have courage and fight through the hard times. My coach told me to have no regrets and entered me in the state relay race for the 4X400. We ended up placing 2nd in the race and we won the state championship. From that moment I realized that I should never let anything bring me down and to keep fighting for what I love doing.
