My name is Carly Gavant and I am a student at Packer Collegiate Institute Class of 2023. Sports has always been a huge part of my life. I have played soccer for ten years, (club soccer for six) basketball for seven years, and golf for two years. Although I love the camaraderie of being apart of a team, golf has the same appeal to me as math always has; no matter how difficult the problem, there will always be a definitive solution. When I was younger, playing sports was more about the fun and fitness of it. I just wanted to go out, work a sweat, and have fun doing it. However, as I have gotten older, I have become more and more aware of how many life lessons sports has taught me and how much they have prepared me for the future.
- If I were to describe myself as an athlete, I would say my most unique quality is my single-mindedness and persistence. Once I set a goal for myself I will not let up until I have accomplished it. There have been too many times where I have found myself at the driving range looking up to see that it is close to closing and I am the only one there. Although I am highly competitive, I have a laid-back personality so I appear cool under pressure (I never let them see me sweat!)
While sports are and always will be my passion, academics are my top priority. My ideal school would be an institution that celebrates excellence in both and that offers a well-rounded and diverse student experience. Currently, I have become very interested in Architecture and Sustainable Design and hope to pursue studies around this area in the future. Thank you so much for reading my page!
