When I was a freshman, I was not very interested in playing golf. I just looked at it as another sport and my family told me it would be a good idea to at least try it out for a year. That first year I enjoyed it, but I definitely did not take it seriously. I did not know if I was going to play my sophomore year, but I did. Toward the end of my sophomore year, however, I realized that I had potential and I decided to take it seriously. That summer I put in a lot of work, became obsessed, and that is how I became interested. As I've prepared to take my game to the collegiate level, I have realized that I need to work on parts of my game such as learning more about the mental approach to the game. I believe that working more and more at staying calm and patient during my rounds will be a huge step toward becoming a more complete student-athlete.
On the other hand, some people that have influenced who I am are, most definitely my parents, they are always pushing me to work hard and be driven. They encourage me to be the best person I can be toward anyone and everyone. They are always there to help me, but have also taught me how to be independent, take initiative, and do things on my own. Some unique characteristics I possess are; I am driven, motivated, competitive, independent, and ambitious.
Some of my academic goals for high school are definitely to keep my grades and GPA as high as I possibly can, stay involved in activities, and to leave a positive impact on everyone I encounter. I aspire do the same things in college, maintain high grades and push myself to do my best in every class.
