I want to compete in cross country at the collegiate level. I am willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Running is what I love to do. I started running in 6th grade because of my cousin, who ran at the collegiate level, and I started taking running seriously freshman year. From running, I have learned that I am competitive and motivated to be the best that I can. I am a driven, hardworking, cooperative leader that pushes myself and others to do their best. I am willing to make sacrifices for the greater good of the team. My academic goals for high school are to be in the top half of my class, GPA wise and score well on the ACT and SAT. In college, I plan to work hard to pass and excel in my classes and get my work done so that I can get my college degree.
