Personal Statement

My whole life I've been a very competitive person. I have always played to win, whether it was street games with the neighborhood kids, any type of video game, sports, or whatever else there is. That's the whole mindset I have always lived by: if you aren't winning then you either didn't give enough effort or you need to put in more work.  This mindset carries over to every aspect of life, whether it's physical activity, school, work, and any other part of life. I work hard because love to succeed, and when I don't succeed, which of course happens and will happen even to the best of us, then I know absolutely for a fact that I will work harder and win it next time. Competition is a huge part of my life and it is what drives me to be such an athletic and in-shape person. Many will simply say that what sets them apart from others is they work harder, and I'm not necessarily saying the same thing in that I will work as hard as I can to be the best, even against all odds. I consider myself a good person and I always strive to be. An important lesson I've learned in life is to maintain good sportsmanship, don't blame others, always know when you are in the wrong. I also consider school to be top priority before sports. But do know, that after school, sports is a without a doubt a close second.
