I believe that my experiences as a student and as an athlete have allowed me to become a leader in both fields. I am not the type of student that has found success without effort. I believe my hard work in the classroom has prepared me with the necessary tools to be successful at the collegiate level. Also, as an undersized thrower I have had to work twice as hard to compete at the level that I have been fortunate enough to compete at. My drive and desire in and out of the classroom will lead to my success at the next level.
