The life of a winner is about adversity and overcoming it. Luckily, I’ve dealt with my fair share of adversity early on. I was born in Waipio, Hawaii and raised about. After Kindergarten we moved to Nevada, which was a big culture shock from our island lifestyle. I left ALL of my 5 siblings in the move. Although Nevada is where I discovered some of my best friends and my love for football. We used to play football before and after practice. Even when we didn’t have practice or had games, we’d be playing ball 24/7. Then we moved back to the islands, I missed my friends, but this move wasn’t as devastating. I met up with all my siblings and my old friends. I quickly rejoined football, but it lacked the substance I truly loved about it. So, I stopped playing and enjoyed my friends and family. Before Highschool started I moved to Texas, again leaving my siblings and friends behind. For the 1st time in my life I felt completely alone. My emotions were always gloomy and anxious; I had no friends and no drive to make better my situation. I didn’t join football and skipped classes all freshman year. I was unable to do well; I just wasn’t emotionally stable. Then my sophomore year I moved to a new school and decided that a better me is what I wanted, so I joined football to built up my academic and social performance. I found that I truly loved football because of the brotherhood and positive energy. And in playing the sport I learned a new meaning to football and what it had taught me. It taught me to be social, constructive, and maintain high character.
