I want to be a part of a team that will work hard and not settle for being mediocre. I am a good candidate because I am extremely diligent and I am new to the sport of running, so I have more room for improvement. I am different from most runners at my ability level, because I started running the spring of my 9th grade year and I am very focused when it comes to academics. At this time, I am interested in a major in materials engineering. However, I realize I am young, so I'm open to other academic paths, as well. I have always excelled in math and science and am currently 3-years accelerated in math, completing calculus in my sophomore, year.
