My spirit can not be broken. I have had some significant challenges in my life that have taught me that nothing comes easy and if you want something bad enough you must work hard to achieve it. I will approach my college experience with the same drive and determination that I have lived my life so far.
While at college I wish to push myself academically and physically. I plan to attend a DII or DIII school and become an engineer. I entered high school having already completed High School Algebra I and I am currently in Accelerated Algebra II as a freshman. I am currently enrolled in all honors level classes and am gaining College Running Start credit for several classes. I hope to maintain my current 4.0 GPA and take some AP classes.
In addition to my strong academic program, I run Cross Country in the fall, ski in the winter and play lacrosse for my school’s spring team. Along with these sports, I play on Four Leaf New England Lacrosse year round. I participate in my school’s concert band, playing the clarinet. I take pride in knowing that I am honest and determined in what I do. I also take pride in knowing that I get along well with my teammates and can fit in with almost every type of team.
I became familiar with lacrosse through a friend and tried it out. After the first practice, I knew that I had found the perfect sport. I have now been playing for 8 years and still enjoy it as much as the first day. I can use both hands and can do most types of dodges. I can pass and catch well and can shoot pretty fast. I know the flow of the game and have been told that I have a high lacrosse IQ. I can play my position very well and can use my body along with my feet to work my man to the outside or down the alley. I can also turn an attackman around if they dodge from X. I can slide with body and stick if needed and can learn defenses quick. I can do both 1 and 2 slides and can play man down.
