The most influential time of my life was when I failed to make any teams that I tried out for. This experience pushed me to work even harder, so I would never have to feel that again. The next year I came back and made both of the teams that I tried out for, which encouraged me to keep working hard and see what I could achieve next. I've learned so much about myself from this sport because I know the amount of dedication, sacrifice, and attention needed to achieve your goals academically and physically.
I have now participated in this sport for nine years and I am looking to continue my career at a college with strong academics that has a welcoming environment and the ability to lead me in achieving my goals. I am dedicated to becoming the best athlete and the best person possible. I believe that I have the ability to compete for your team and provide positive leadership skills along with an impeccable work ethic.
