Personal Statement

My goal is to take my heights to the next level in college and receive a degree in Physical Therapy. I have aspirations to succeed and grow stronger everyday to achieve that goal. My motivation is fueled by my "WHY", meaning I have a purpose for everything I do. My "WHY" is to inspire others to never give up on their dreams and to make my family proud by doing what a majority of athletes of local athletes only dream about. That dream is to succeed and dominate in my event and remain humble. My "WHY" is going to push me when I can't push myself and give me that edge when I'm about to give up. I am willing to sacrifice who I am for what I will become.

I am the oldest of 10 grandchildren and the first to go to college. My parents are first generation college graduates and are now doing for me what their parents did for them.  By using my God given talent, I have the chance to make my family proud by doing what many in my community only dream of...competing at the next level while attaining a college degree.
