Personal Statement

Hello, my name is Frank Cruz.  A quote I tell myself every day is "Nothing is impossible, but the word itself says i'm possible." by Audrey Hepburn. I like to tell myself this quote because you better live life to the fullest and there's nothing impossible to do.  I like to consider my self into two different characteristics about myself. The two characteristics are leadership and my concern and dedication to my studies. 

One character trait that I believe I exemplify is leadership. I attended the Simpson Leadership Conference because I wanted to know more about becoming a good leader, how to help others through difficult situations, and how to resolve conflicts. My manager at Ramsey’s Market, Alex Peterson,  told me one of my best character traits is my leadership abilities. He explained by saying I act more like a 25-year-old individual rather than the 17-year-old that I am. He also said that I get things done without being asked to do them in the first place and that there's a lot that gets done when I’m there working.

Another character trait that I believe exemplifies me is my concern and dedication to my studies. I first became concerned about my grades my sophomore year. In the first year of high school, I slacked off, rationalizing that grades were not everything. I didn't really focus on any of my work, and I didn’t study for tests. By the end of my freshmen year, I ended up with a 2.6-2.7 GPA. I was really disappointed in myself because I knew that I could’ve done better. Also, my low GPA would not allow me to enter the major I wanted in college, Pre-Law.  I told myself, as an upcoming sophomore, that I had to improve my grades and actually study. By the end of my sophomore year, I raised my GPA to a 3.00. I felt that this was a big accomplishment.  My sister, Ashley Cruz, a sophomore in college, always gives me advice and reminds me not to slack off because it will come back to hurt me sometime in the future.

To conclude, I listed this two qualities because many people will wonder why I have a low GPA, or how much they don't I achieved in less than two years.  I feel like being part of the track team or even the cross country team, will have me doing something instead of being bored and getting done early in my studies. I feel like writing what I went through with my studies and how hard I tried makes me different because no one really cares about it at a young age. They'll feel like they want to give up and just think its okay.
