I believe in having core values and leading by example. By being committed & hard working in all aspects of my life I believe success will come. I have been leading my high school varsity team since I was 14 years old. Some might say that is a lot of weight to carry for a runner so young, but I believe it has pushed me past what I ever thought was possible. I led my team to the 6A State cross country meet last year, and to the Area qualifying track meet, I believe we will accomplish even greater tasks this year. My motto has been “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”. I choose god, family and hard work as the motivation that drives me each and every day. I want to be challenged so that I can overcome and learn. I believe one can never reach their goals without sacrifice and my goals are endless.
