Personal Statement

When I first decided to run track in my sophomore year, I didn't have much faith in myself as a runner. I believed that I could do alright, but I didn't think that I would be a top performer. Initially, my times weren't competitive, and I struggled with soreness after workouts. To become more competitive, I did summer training runs and ran cross country to build up my strength and endurance. Fighting through these issues made me mentally and physically stronger. With my coach’s guidance, my determination and commitment rendered great results. My times, endurance and strength greatly improved; I became a top performer in my conference and state.

Today, due to the committed work I've put in, I'm a state and regional medalist in the 300m and 4x400 relay. I’m also a state scorer in many other events. I’m a captain on my team; often having other runners come to me with questions and concerns. I'm a two season MVP, 1st Team All-County, and recently nominated for the 2019 McCormick Unsung Hero Scholarship Award. I've managed to accomplish all of this while keeping up a heavy course load. I have completed ten AP classes throughout my high school career and have consistently achieved honor roll since my sophomore year.  Applying myself to my team and my studies has improved my capabilities as a student-athlete. I've become more confident, sociable, and responsible. I attribute a lot of this to my time as a runner. I plan to continue my studies by majoring in Information Technology & Sciences in college. To me, being in a challenging college program, both academically and athletically, would be the next step in continuing the great trajectory that I'm on. My ability to face any challenge, my strong work ethic, and my leadership skills would make me a great fit for your college and track program.
