Personal Statement

From an early age I have learned how to overcome obstacles and to persevere. I have high functioning  autism which has presented challenges in the classroom and on the track. With my work ethic, I have overcome these challenges by becoming the best student I can be. I have spent years working on my technique daily through analysis and drills. The results I have achieved are the culmination of all that work. I throw because it helps me improve myself by strengthening my mind and body and allowing them to work together better. Throwing is one of the most biomechanically complex sports and that is why I enjoy it. The difficulty of the sport has pushed me to develop better body control and has taught me the value of persistence.  

I enjoy learning simply to learn. Knowledge is power, no matter what kind of knowledge it is. Throwing is a journey about improvement through knowledge and practice. The quality of the journey is up to you. I enjoy understanding and improving systems. Throwing is a system of movements and a good throw is a well optimized system, similar to engineering an efficient machine. You go through multiple versions fixing and improving the technique until you reach a final end product that performs amazingly and hopefully goes far. 

I like to problem solve and my dream is to become an engineer. I feel like my technical knowledge and discipline would be a great asset to any track team. I am ready to work and make an impact immediately.
