" I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I cannot accept not trying." -Michael Jordan
This is a quote I live by, whether I'm on or off the field, In the gym or at school. I strive to work hard and to always perform at my best. I have never been the top athlete in my school or at my club but I don't let that detour me. Sometimes I push myself too far and become very self-critical, but this all part of growing as an athlete and a person.
Although I have not had a large amount of success through my high school team, I have been able to learn so much more than I ever would have thought. Not only have I been taught new skills, but I have also learned to cherish victory and accept defeat appropriately. I believe this has helped mold me into the athlete that I have strived to be. I hope to become a college soccer player and get my undergraduates degree in marine biology or business major.
