Personal Statement

My parents have always challenged me to develop short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals and then create concrete plans for attaining them.  This has really helped me create a path for success. They also told me that "failure is my friend" if I learned valuable lessons from the mistakes I made challenging myself and testing my limits. I think this makes me a good candidate for a college lacrosse program because even when I'm not  the biggest or fastest player on the field, I am always committed to working as hard as possible to be the best player I can be and develop my lax IQ.  I think one thing that makes me different from other recruits is that I was homeschooled until I started high school. Academically, this experience helped me to develop a curious mind and a love of learning, while also helping me be more self-reliant and motivated to do my school work.  Being homeschooled, I volunteered for community service projects along side my family and we really focused on our faith life. In my family we approach everything like a team and focus on putting the needs of others ahead of ourselves, so that has really helped me whether I'm working on a class project with other students or on the lacrosse field with my teammates.
