Personal Statement


Running has become my Covid lockdown blessing. After playing baseball for 8 years, I did not make the freshman team.  As I began to look for a new sport to join, 2020 hit and everything was shut down.  That summer the only team that was practicing was cross country. At first I struggled with running everyday but because I don’t believe in quitting I kept up with it. As the weeks passed I found that not only was I enjoying running but that I was really good at it.  What started as just something to get me through Covid, quickly grew into a passion.

My sophomore year I joined the cross country team and eventually the track team.  I found running made me stronger, physically and mentally. Running and competing is teaching me life lessons such as, without failure, there is no room for improvement. It has also taught me that winning a race is not always guaranteed, but can be achieved through hard work. I have learned that while you can be competitive with your teammates you can also be an encouragement to them.  My teammates, while reaching for their personal best, push me to achieve my best.  I, in return, encourage them.  It is this positive environment which has taught me sportsmanship, and teamwork and pushes me to my best abilities.

In the classroom I am focused and determined to do my best and put 100% into all assignments, projects and tests. I am an honors and AP student.   I am self driven to do the best in every area of my school work.  Running is making me a better student.  It’s teaching me to push myself a little harder each time and to know that I can achieve what I set my mind to doing.
