Personal Statement

My name is Adugna (pronounced Ah-doon-ya) Moritz. I'm 16 years old and was born in Ethiopia. I have lived in the US since I was 8 years old, first in Colorado and most recently in Michigan. My first passion was soccer and I played competitively until the 8th grade. I started running 5K and 10K road races when I was 11 as a way to keep my edge in this sport and because people said I was fast. I've also competed in swimming, karate, wrestling and football. In middle school, I went out for cross country and track and did well. These sports are now my primary focus since starting high school last year. I'm constantly told I have a gift and I'm hoping to turn this into an opportunity for a college education. I have always been interested in a career in mechanical or electrical engineering (I've been repairing iphones for a couple years now and like to build and fix things) so a college with a strong engineering plus a top running program would be perfect. 

A little more about me, I think my coaches would say I'm responsible and have a solid work ethic.  I set high goals for myself and know the importance of staying mentally focused when I run. I'm a team player and I like to share my experiences and set a good example for younger and less experienced runners.  I don’t procrastinate.  I work hard in school and care about my grades.  I did not do well my first semester of high school after the stress of leaving friends and family in Colorado and starting a new school.  My goal is to be at at least a 3.6 by the end of my  junior year.  When I'm not training I like to skateboard, snowboard and hang out with friends. 

I hope to someday to be offered a scholarship that combines running and academics. I'm leaning toward colleges out West, or someplace warmer than Michigan, but I will go wherever I can to get a good education. I think I would like to run competitively beyond college too if I can stay free of injuries and at the top of my game. Hopefully, you now know a little more about me. Please feel free to contact me if you have anymore questions.

Sincerely,

Adugna Moritz
