A collegiate goal I have is to be able to continue playing basketball in college. Growing up, basketball has been the sport that I have learned to love throughout the years. Even though I may not be as skilled or possess the athleticism that others may have, I have the will and determination to put in the time and effort that takes to become a better athlete. On top of that, I am very optimistic. Despite losing each game during my senior season, I continued to head into each game knowing that we had a chance and played to the best of my ability. I am not one to let the scoreboard dictate whether the game has been won or lost until the final buzzer has gone off.
Another collegiate goal I have is to be able to either pursue a career in aerospace or mechanical engineering. Throughout my high school career, I did my best to take rigorous classes, even though I had no desire to, knowing that it was what was required of me in order to be one step closer to this goal.
