I was not the most popular kid in elementary school and was bullied. During this time I discovered the game of lacrosse. Things got better, but they also got worse. It was better because I gained a lot of friends, but now the bullies targeted me in athletics. This drove me to get bigger, stronger and better so that I could have the upper hand, without question on the field. Now when I’m either on or off the field they give me a nod as a sign of respect.
Lacrosse has taught me many important things, but what I think is the most important is that there will always be someone better. You must constantly fight to be the best and once you reach the top you keep on climbing.
I am loyal and kind off the field and I would love to play lacrosse at the college level. I think of myself as a soldier on the lacrosse team. I follow the coaches' directions and complete them without failure. I compete at a high level with a strong sense of team and sportsmanship.
In high school I strive for being at the top of my class because I do not and cannot see myself anywhere else. As for college I hope to gain a great education in Mechanical Engineering.
