I became who I am with the help of my parents. They are always by my side pushing me to do what is right. The summer before my freshman year of high school, I was playing softball. I kept saying I wanted to quit the position I was playing because it was exhausting. My mom preached to me the whole game that I am not a quitter and I will not stop because of pain. So, I fought threw the pain just like she preached and finished the game.
I became interested in my sport when I was very young. My mother played my sport when she was in school so I wanted to follow in her footsteps. I did so. As the years progressed, I became more interested. I would sit down and watch college play. I remember always telling myself that would be myself one day. I also attended our local high school games close to my high school years.
I have learned threw out the years that I am a fighter. That no matter who it is, or what it is, that I have the potential to overcome it. I have learned that I have tons of energy and that I can push myself father than all my doubters can see. I have learned that I can and I will.
I have talked about graduating high school with honors. I have fantasized about walking out of those high school doors at the end of every year with straight A's and a GPA higher than 3.5. When I reach college, I look forward to being a student athlete. I have also fantasized about being able to become a certified vet.
I have had to come over many obstacles to get where I am. Whether it be in sports, in school, at home, or my personal life, there has been many obstacles.
When I was in 8th grade, I played basketball. At end of the season we had a banquet and I received a plaque for the team leader. I think that falls under character.
