The thing you need to know most about me is that I thrive when given a challenge. My teammates always tease me that I can dig down deeper, and hurt more than anyone on our team. I had never run a day before showing up to my first cross country practice - and this year I was part of the State Championship 4A team in Florida, which is one of the most competitive states for running in the nation. I set my PR at the State Championship race, because I excel when competition is greatest. I am hard working, and excited to learn. I put my heart into everything I do and I am always striving to improve. I am interested in studying computer science and artificial intelligence in college because I enjoy the challenge that programming presents with each project, and because I believe that these areas of study are, and will continue to be some of the most impactful fields of study in the world around us.
