Since I was 5, I have loved the game of golf. I have always loved everything to do with sports. I have played multiple sports such as cross country and soccer at a high level. This school year I had to make the hard decision whether to try to follow golf, cross country or soccer. Honestly, this decision was not that difficult based on how much I love the game of golf and I felt I could succeed the most pursuing it. I put forth a lot of effort with golf and academics. Both golf and getting good grades are very important to me.
One of my most memorable experiences was when I lived in Ecuador for two years with my family. I went there not knowing much Spanish and was the only person in my grade that didn't speak the language. Throughout this experience, it was very hard to adapt to a new language and culture; however, I became fluent in Spanish and really enjoyed living in the country. There were only 8 golf courses in Ecuador. Fortunately, I was able to play with a group of kids my age that were very competitive and were kind enough to help me become comfortable in a new place. This experience in Ecuador showed me I am able to adapt and overcome many types of obstacles.
I am very determined with golf and academics, am a leader on the golf team, and I enjoy taking challenges in life and turning them into opportunities.
