The first time I remember running a mile was in the 3rd grade fitness test. Somehow, the pacing just seemed natural, and that was when I found my love for running. Since then, I have given my all in running and the more I do, the better it gets. I try to put this effort into every aspect of my life, especially academics. My hard work and dedication have helped me excel, but being a leader allows me to help those around me excel, too. I hope to be able to attend a college where I can continue to grow in the classroom and make an impact on the track.
