When I pursue my dreams and goals, I do it with very high levels of persistence and perseverance. In academics I have studied hard and have taken the most advanced classes possible at my high school. I am the very first student ever at Jasper High School to take AP Chemistry as a sophomore, and this year as a junior I am one of only 5 students ever taking ever taking AP Calculus as a junior. I take all honors and AP courses wherever possible. This year as a junior I am taking AP Calculus, AP Literature, AP American History, and AP Computer Science, and also physics which is taught at an honors level. In training for soccer as goalkeeper, I train all year playing for my club team, high school team, Indiana ODP, and even futsal. I receive goalkeeper specific training through both my previous and current club team, as well as with Indiana ODP. I have always trained frequently and vigorously outside of practices as well . I travel an hour away to practice with my club team, and over 2 1/2 hours away to train with Indiana ODP. I push myself to be the best I can be both in my training as a goalkeeper, and in my academic pursuits. My AP college level classes and my intense training as a GK have prepared me well to be a college student athlete.
